[ Music ]>>Good morning. [ Applause & Cheering ] Ladies and gentlemen welcome
to the 27th Annual Craig School of Business Convocation. [ Applause & Cheering ] Would anyone please rise for
our national anthem to be sung by Fresno State student,
Constantine Pappas? [ Pause ]>>[Singing] Oh, say can you
see, by the dawn’s early light. What so proudly we hailed at
the twilight’s last gleaming? Whose broad stripes
and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
o’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming. And the rockets’ red glare,
the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night
that our flag was still there. Oh say, does that Star-Spangled
Banner yet wave o’er the land of the free and the
home of the brave. [ Applause & Cheering ]>>Wow! Thank you Constantine. You may be seated. Graduates, family,
friends, faculty and distinguished guests,
welcome to the Craig School of Business Convocation. I’m Bob Harper, Dean of the
Craig School of Business. For the enjoyment of those
around you, please turn on or silence any cellphones or
electronic devices and remember to remain in your seats
during the ceremony. Photos of the graduates will be
taken as they cross the stage and proofs will be
emailed after our ceremony from the photographer. Also the ceremony will be linked to the Fresno State
YouTube page within a week. I want to begin by introducing
the special quest we have on stage today. I’d like to ask when
their name is called that they way their
hand or tip their hat in someway to identify them. And please hold your applause
until all have been introduced. Beginning to my left
is Dr. Joseph I. Castro, President
of Fresno State. [ Applause & Cheering ] Next to Dr. Castro is Kurtis
Willey, the Craig School of Business Graduate
Dean’s medalist. [ Applause & Cheering ] Next to Mr. Willey is Dr.
Andrew Hoff, Interim Provost and Academic Vice
President to Fresno State. Next to provost Hoff is Kathy
Mof?tt, the Associate Dean in the School of Business. Next to Kathy Mof?tt is Brenda
Garcia Lemus the Undergraduate Deans’ medalist. [ Applause & Cheering ] And next to Brenda is
Lynnette Zelezny, Vice Provost and Provost designate. And next to Dr. Zelezny
is Carolyn Coon, Associate Provost Interim
Associate Vice President and Dean of Student
Affair at Fresno state. And last is Dr. Marshall

I am confident, will be successful
career for you. Years from now as you reflect
on your time spend here; I hope you have you have fun
memories of the Craig School of Business at Fresno
State and feel that you prepared you
well for the future. Now, I’m pleased to
introduce, the president of Fresno State,
Dr. Joseph Castro. [ Applause & Cheering ]>>Good morning? [ Applause & Cheering ] Hey! It is my great pleasure
to join all of you today for the Craig School of
Business Convocation. As you may know this is my
first commencement season as the president of Fresno State and the first ceremony
of that season. So I’m really happy
to be here with you. [ Applause & Cheering ] I am very proud of all of your
significant accomplishments. In my nearly 10 months
at Fresno State, I have been challenging
students, faculty, staff and administrators
with the simple phrase of, “Let’s be bold,” the
response has be tremendous, throughout the campus, there is
communication and collaboration, fresh ideas and noble
twist on old ideas, suggestions and solutions. And as you prepare the graduate
and more forward with your life, I hope that you’ll do
that with boldness. Be– That’s right. Be bold in your creativity,
generate new concepts. Try new things. Push yourselves into new realms. Be bold in having
the courage to say and do what you believe
is right. Be bold proclaiming what an
excellent education you received at Fresno State. Tell others that this is a
university of opportunity for the residence of
the central valley. We should all be proud that
we’re university of discovery, diversity and distinction. [ Applause & Cheering ] We offer education that allows
our students to work and succeed in graduate school
and in hundreds of different kinds of careers. And we have an enviable record
of achievement, bar students and accomplishment
by 200,000 alumni. And you get to join the
ranks of that 200,000 alumni.>>Yehey.>>Yeah. [ Applause & Cheering ] I know that the Craig School
is vital in preparing graduates who will shape and sustain
the future of our region. Let’s also remember
that our success, your success wouldn’t happen without accomplished
caring faculty and staff and supportive family and
alumni and community members. I want to thank all the families
who are here today who support of the graduates,
congratulations. [ Applause & Cheering ] The Craig School Business had
its accreditation extended by the AACSB International–
I’m sorry– by the AACSB which
is the Association to Advance Collegiate
School of Business. Less than 5% of the world’s
business programs have this premier recognition. Congratulations. [ Applause & Cheering ] The Craig School has had this
accreditation since 1958. And was the first in the California
State University System to achieve this distinction. Yeah. [ Applause & Cheering ] Congratulations also to the
students who participated in the Student-Managed
Investment Fund which currently manages
$2.7 million of our university’s foundation. And in a national competition
amongst approximately 60 other student managed funds. Our team took first place
in the growth category. [ Applause & Cheering ] They took first place because
they had a risk adjusted return of 37.5% in 2013. Way to go. [ Applause & Cheering ] Please look for a trading room
to be established this fall to help our students
continue the research investment opportunities. Please join me in a round
of applause for everyone who has contributed so much to
the Craig School of Business. [ Applause & Cheering ] Today is a celebration of your and your family’s
accomplishments. And a day in which you
begin to look forward. I am confident that Fresno
State has prepared you well for success in your chosen field
and as leaders in community. And I hope that you will
stay connected with us. Stay connected to us as alumni,
Bulldog fans and advocates for future students following
in your footsteps to our campus. Thank you. [ Applause & Cheering ] It is my great privilege to congratulate you
on your achievement. And for all that you’re
going to do in the future. Thank you very much. [ Applause & Cheering ]>>Thank you so much Dr. Castro. Next I’d like to
introduce the Provost of Fresno State,
Dr. Andrew Hoff. [ Applause & Cheering ]>>Good morning everyone. Congratulations on becoming
a member the Fresno State graduating class of 2014. [ Applause & Cheering ] You have achieved
the remarkable goal. Did you know that less than 32% of all Americans accomplish
a bachelor’s degree, few or than 12% complete
a master’s degree, and about 3% completed
doctoral degree. It is clear that each of you
made a conscious decision to be a leader in
a university degree that will enhance your future and the future of
those around you. Your choice also means a
great deal to your community, our valley, and beyond
California. I can tell you from personal
experience that at this time, you do not know what impact
you may produce across all of the relationships you will
have with others in the future. I would suggest that
you’d be open to those opportunities
when they come along. And who should you be? I would suggest that it is your
mission to be a part of everyone around you, add something of
value to each person you meet. Share most generously with those
you love and don’t become upon of the drama of others. Think profoundly. Live profoundly and
love profoundly. You have made a great decision
to attend Fresno State. Today you graduate
from student to alum. And with that transformation
comes a few additional requirements that
were not listed in the catalogue
when you enrolled. And unlike other
university requirements, these come with no
additional fees. Be a mentor to your siblings,
relatives, neighbors and others. Be of service to others. Be a force for progress
and change in organizations
in your community. Be an ambassador for the
power of university education. Be a bulldog and
support your university, its academic programs
and athletics. Don’t be a stranger. Visit often. And be an active member of
this great community of sisters and brothers you after
all Fresno State. Congratulations. [ Applause & Cheering ]>>Thank you Dr. Hoff. Before we hear from
the Dean’s Medalist, I’d like to take a minute to
explain to you the meaning of some of the “regalia” that’s
being worn by our graduates. Our MBA graduates will
be wearing special hoods which designates
their advance degrees. On page 4 of your program,
you’ll see the graduates who will be wearing degrees from the Craig School
this academic year. Graduate students who
are graduating with a 3.9 to 4.0 GPA have a plus
sign next to their name and are wearing a cord
indicating they are completing their degree with distinction. With the MBA and MSA
students graduating with distinction please
stand and be recognized. [ Applause & Cheering ] Thank you. Undergraduate students
graduating with university honors
are wearing cords to display their level of
honors and have asterisks next to their names in the
program beginning on page 6. Summa Cum Laude represents a
3.9 to 4.0 GPA and it symbolized with red, blue and gold cords. Magna Cum Laude represents a 3.7
to 3.89 GPA and it symbolized with red, blue and silver cords. Cum Laude represents 3.5 to
3.69 GPA and is symbolized with red and blue cords. Would all of the
undergraduate students, graduating with honors,
Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, or Summa Cum Laude, please
stand and be recognized. [ Applause & Cheering ] Thank you. The sashes being worn by students represent
their membership in specific student
organizations at Fresno State. Membership in extra curricular
activities are important to produce a well-rounded
graduate and is encourage by
the Craig School. Please refer to page 12 of
your program to see the names of the student organizations
and their represented colors. Now I’m please to introduce
the Dean’s Medalist. Please refer to their profiles
on page 4 and 6 of your program. Our Graduate Dean’s
Medalist is Kurtis Willey. [ Applause & Cheering ] Kurtis is completing his Ag EMBA
this semester with a 4.0 GPA after previously receiving
an undergraduate degree in accounting fror the
Craig School of Business. His EMBA cohort just returned
from Beijing and Hong Kong for their requisite study
abroad component of the program. He is currently a Job
Costing Supervisor at Agri-Valley Irrigation
and Chairman of the Fresno County
Republican Party. Kurtis’s future plans include
a run for public office. He’s already served as an
elective representative in District 5 and is
currently serving– he’s currently the chairman of the Fresno County
Republican Party. Please welcome our graduate
Dean’s Medalist, Kurtis Willey. [ Applause & Cheering ]>>Hello. I’d like
to thank the– I’d like to thank Fresno State for having the earliest
graduation on the West Coast. I’m glad everyone is here. They’re looking good. And to wake you guys up, I thought we get a
little bit more energized. So kind of like the
Bulldogs here. And I’m going to go with
this side, I want this side to say Fresno State and
when I point to this side, I want you to say
Bulldogs, all righty?>>[Simultaneously]
Fresno State! Bulldogs!>>Was that loud enough or
we should it one more time. OK.>>[Simultaneously]
Fresno State! Bulldogs! [ Applause & Cheering ]>>All right now
that we’re awake, I do have a few people
I like to thank. First I like to thank Tom
Burns for nominating me to receive the 2014
graduate’s dean medal. And I’d like to thank the
academy, I mean, Dr. Dean Harper and Dr. Mof?tt for selecting me. I’m very honored and humbled. I’d also like to acknowledge
a very special group of people they’re
seated in the front row, the 11th executive MBA
program of Fresno State. [ Applause & Cheering ] And the first Ag EMBA. [ Applause & Cheering ] You guys rock, “che-che.” And on that note if anyone is
interesting doing the executive, EMBA I highly recommend that Tom
Burns has put together one hell of a program. And that you will be very
excited to join the group of 30 people plus during
a very rigorous 18 months. But as you see the excitement
was all worth it, so. However, there is one person in this group that’s most
important person in my life and that’s my wife
Megan Willey who I’m– [ Applause & Inaudible Remarks ] Megan and I have gone
through undergrad– we graduate in 2009 together. And we just finish our MBA
so congratulations Megan. And she’s also graduating
with honors. [ Applause & Cheering ] Now I’ll just ask everyone
to look around this room and recognize each
and every person in this room that’s made
incredible sacrifices to get to this point today. We’ve endured all those
late night cram seasons, study groups, group projects,
too many exams to count, negotiation classes which
believe or not it will help you when you do land that
job– that job interview. And all those crazy
PowerPoint presentations, thank you Dr. Rice for teaching
me how to harpoons one mind. [ Applause & Cheering ] Look what I started. And also thank your for
teaching me how to think about how I think things. [ Applause & Cheering ] Today marks the day of incredible achievement
that’s completed by individuals present. One that each and everyone
of us will never forget. And one that everyone in the
stand should be proud of. Although I did read an
interesting statistic that business students are
the most likely to cheat. So maybe all of that individual
achievement stuff should be– should have asterisk referencing
a footnote, their references of bibliography in MLA
format that sites Wikipedia. We’re the graduating class of
2014 and we should be proud. [ Applause & Cheering ] As I stand before you today,
I must congratulate all of you who have made it this far. Now we’re just moments away
from walking down stage. And shaking hands
of many professors and accepting your degree,
we must all remember that this honor being
a CSU graduate comes with higher responsibility. This responsibility includes
mentoring of your brothers, your sisters, your cousins,
your neighbors and your friends in their pursuit of
a college education. I ask you to take the lead and
mentoring the closest to you to ensure that they
too will attend college and following your footsteps. It also includes these four
points; make Fresno State proud, make your city shine, represent
the Craig School of Business in each in everyone
of your endeavors, and you become a manager or supervisor hire
Fresno State alumni. [ Applause & Cheering ] For some of you, you maybe
following your parent’s footsteps in pursuing
your college degree, for others you may be inspired
by sibling or maybe you’re like me and you’re the first in
your family to graduate college. [ Applause & Cheering ] Regardless of the path you
followed or the path you paved, I want you to look around,
look at the people next you. And on three, I want
you to yell, “We did it,” One, two, three.>>[Simultaneously] We did it. [ Applause & Cheering ]>>Thank you Kurtis. Brenda Garcia Lemus is
completing her Bachelor of Arts in Economics with a perfect 4.0. And she’s our undergraduate
Dean’s Medalist this year. She’s a member of the Craig
School Honors Program Class of 2014 and has written an
undergraduate honor thesis. Brenda also has held
the title of President of the Economics
Student Association. After being accepted
in the master’s program at multiple prestigious
universities, she has accepted a scholarship
and will begin studies for Masters in Economics at Duke
University this coming fall. Brenda was also recently– [ Applause ] Brenda was also recently
selected by the Fresno State
Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi as our university’s
graduate fellowship nominee for a national award. So I’m proud to present our
Undergraduate Dean’s Medalist, Brenda Garcia Lemus. [ Applause ] [ Pause ]>>Hello. How’s everyone doing? Good, wow. [ Cheering ] First of all I would like
to congratulate all of you on this very special day, all of
the hard work, sleepless nights and persistence that
finally paid off. Yeah. I would like to thank all
of the faculty, Dean Harper, President Castro, the
Craig School of Business and Fresno State for all
of your great contribution to our education. As Elias Zerhouni once said “You can’t put a large
box in a small box.” Well, you cannot put a full
life in a small dream box. As we are now entering a
new chapter in our lives which is an exciting yet
unpredictable new journey, never forget to follow
your dreams. Whether your dream is to
open your own business, to become the next Warren Buffet or to develop the next
innovative economic model or whichever dream is in your
heart take the courage to stand up and chase after that dream. I know that for many
of us here if not all of us our dream was once to
become college graduates. And look now here we all are. It was the everyday small
efforts that contributed to achieving our dream of completing our
undergraduate education. It was all of those long hours
we spent studying for midterms, the time we invested to write
essays, to attend class, to keep up with our school
work that slowly helped us get to where we all are here at
this graduation ceremony. I challenge you to
use the same approach of making small daily efforts
towards achieving your future goals and dreams. However, never forget
to thank all of those who help you achieve
those dreams. In our case, it was our
devoted professors, our parents, our mentors, all of the
generous donors and every person that pushed us one step closer
to earning an education. As we now enter a new state
in our life with a new set of dreams and aspirations,
don’t be afraid of the obstacles that will come along the way. During our undergraduate
education, we experience several challenges
whether there were financial, life, or emotional hardships, our endurance overcame
that adversity. So as we now pursue a
life in a big dream box, let’s not be discourage
by the no’s and the rejections of others. If Howard Schultz
founder of Starbucks gave up after being turn
down by banks 242 times to begin the coffee chain
there would be no Starbucks on every corner and we
wouldn’t have survive without his caffeinated drinks. It was that 243rd time
that made a difference. So never give up at
that 242nd second time. Let’s take this as an example
that anything you set your mind to is possible, even if the conditions may not seemed
very favorable at the moment. If you continue to chase after
that dream you will be surprise by what you can accomplish. I would like to thank my
mother, my sister, my boyfriend, all of my friends for
their continued support to help me get to
that 243rd time. Once again congratulations
class of 2014. [ Applause ]>>Thank you Brenda. OK, graduates and guests this
is the moment you’ve been waiting for. [ Cheering ] We will now proceed to the individual
recognition of graduates. Each student’s name will be read by Fresno Pacific faculty
member, Dr. Marshall Johnston. I would like to acknowledge
his efforts since he goes to great lenghts to ensure your
names are pronounced correctly. We’ll start with our
candidates for master’s degree. Graduates, when your name
is called please proceed across the stage to either
Tom Burns, our MBA manager; or Dr. James Schmidtke our
graduate faculty coordinator who will be hooding
you this morning. Once hooded, cross the stage and
shake hands with me and remember to turn to have your
picture taken. You’ll be contacted by the
photographer through email after the ceremony with
proof of the photos. So now I’d like to invite
all the graduate faculty to please come forward to
congratulate the candidates and would the candidates for
master’s degree stand and line up to the right of
the stage in order to come forward and
be recognized. [ Applause ] [ Cheering ]>>Matt Hager. Megan Willey. [ Applause ] Kurtis Willey. [ Applause ] Tan Nguyen. [ Applause ] Gabrielle Kirkland. [ Applause ] April Fernandez.

[ Applause & Cheering ] [ Pause ] Congratulations Class of 2014. Let’s hear it for all of you. [ Applause & Cheering ] So, please be sure to show your
appreciation to your family, friends, faculty and others who
helped you achieve your success. And I urge to stay engaged and
connected with the Craig School of Business at Fresno
State, your alma mater. Please remember President
Castro’s challenge for you to be bold. Another– He added
another comment to that to our faculty awhile back and I thought it would be
appropriate to end with two. He added to be bold, be nice. We will be hosting a reception
immediately following the ceremony in the University
Business Center. This will be a great opportunity
to introduce your family and friends to the faculty at
the Craig School of Business and to take some photos. Our recession will begin
with platform party followed by the faculty, and
then the graduates. Graduates will be escorted
off the arena floor toward section 103. Family and friends
please exit your seats to the concourse level
to meet your graduates. This concludes our ceremony. Thank you for attending. I hope to see you later. [ Applause & Cheering ] [ Music ]
