This past Friday, June 12, we honored the Class of 2015 at the SEFS Graduation Celebration. We heard great student speeches from Sam Israel and Stuart Jergensen, as well as a powerful keynote from SEFS alumna Melody Mobley (’79), and you could feel the pride beaming from friends and family packed into Kane Hall. It’s never easy to say farewell to such a special group of graduates, but we send them off knowing we’ll hear from them again soon—as alumni, as friends, as colleagues and as the future environmental leaders of the world!

This past Friday, June 13, we honored and celebrated with our latest graduating class, sending off an incredibly talented group of students to become the next leaders in their fields—both here at home in the Pacific Northwest, and all around the world. With families and friends packed into Kane Hall, and with professors and graduates in their splendid academic regalia, we heard terrific student speeches from Crescent Calimpong and Tara Wilson, and Professor David Ford had the room in stitches throughout his keynote address. It was a grand affair, and we even managed to wrangle (nearly all of) the graduates for some group photos.
In case you missed the SEFS Graduation fun last Friday, we had a packed ceremony followed by a terrific reception in the Anderson Hall courtyard–where beaming families and friends enjoyed perfect sunshine and enough cupcakes to put their kids in orbit for a week!
We put together a brief slideshow to capture some of the energy, so take a look at the final send-off for our latest graduating class!
