Welcome to Ohlone College’s annual Student Awards Ceremony. This evening we will celebrate the achievement of our students. Each student receiving an award tonight represents excellence in learning and superior academic performance from the all-critical point of view of their professors.
The students here tonight represent some of Ohlone’s greatest successes. Their achievement helps to make our college one of the best-performing two-year colleges in the state. Their success is accomplished through the guidance of Ohlone faculty, who combine expertise in their disciplines with dedication to teaching.
Tonight we will recognize the fruits of the efforts of our students. I am certain as these students tell you their stories, you will appreciate their dedication to their educational goals. I am inspired by their accomplishments, and I think you will be too.
I extend my most sincere congratulations and good wishes to our outstanding student award recipients and thank the faculty for their continued commitment to our students.
