In the event's program, Ohlone College President Gari Browning extended the following welcome to those attending the ceremony:

Welcome to Ohlone College's annual Student Awards Ceremony. This evening celebrates the academic achievement of our students. Students receiving awards tonight have been chosen by their faculty from among thousands of students at the college for top performance and superior commitment to learning. Ohlone is known as a Learning College because we recognize that fostering learning is why we exist. The students receiving awards tonight reflect the fulfillment of that purpose in extraordinary ways. As you listen to the stories of our students, I know you will be impressed and inspired by their accomplishments.

It is also important to acknowledge that the quality of the education these students are receiving at Ohlone is among the best. Ohlone has an excellent record of student achievement and is known for its high quality programs and faculty. We are recognizing the success of students who are accomplishing their goals in a context of institutional excellence.

I extend my most sincere congratulations and good wishes to our outstanding student award recipients and thank the faculty for their commitment to our students.

Gari Browning, Ph.D.
