[ Music ] [ Applause ]>>Ladies and gentlemen, welcome
to the 28th Annual Craig School of Business Convocation. [ Applause ] Please rise for our national
anthem that will be sung by Ali-hondra Te-hey-da a Fresno
State vocal performance student. Ali-hondra. [ Silence ]>>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 thru the perilous fight, o’er the ramparts we watched
were so gallantly streaming. And the rocket’s 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 ]>>Thank you Ali-hondra. Please be seated. Graduates, family,
friends, faculty, and distinguished guests,
welcome to the Craig School of Business Convocation. I am Dr. Robert Harper, Dean at
the Craig School of Business. For the enjoyment of those
around you, please turn off or silence any cell phones 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
e-mailed after our ceremony from the photographer. I want to begin our program by introducing the special
individuals on stage today. Hopefully they’ll wave their
hand when I identify them. Please hold your applause
until all have been introduced. Beginning on my left
is Dr. Joseph Castro, President of Fresno State. Next to Dr. Castro is Dr.
Lynette Zelezny, Provost and Vice President
for Academic Affairs. To the left of Dr. Zelezny is
Dr. Frank Lamas, Vice President of Student Affairs and
Enrollment Management. Next to Dr. Lamas is
Deborah Adishian-Astone, Interim Vice president for
Administrative Services and Associate Vice president
for Auxiliary Operations. To the left of Deborah

and Associate Vice President for Financial Services. Next we have Paula
Castadio, Vice President for University Advancement. Sitting to the left of
Paula is Narinder Pal Singh, the Craig School of Business
Graduate Dean’s Medalist. Next we have Associate
Dean of the Craig School of Business, Dr. Garo Kalfayan. And to the left of Garo
is the Craig School of Business Undergraduate
Dean’s Medalist, Renan de Lima. And last we have Dr.
Marshall Johnston who will be reading the
graduates names this morning. Let’s give them all
a big hand please. [ Applause ] Students, let me be the first to
congratulate you upon completion of your degree program and
welcome you as you start, what I am confident, will be
a successful career for you. Years from now as you reflect
on your time spent here, I hope you have fond memories
of the Craig School of Business at Fresno State and feel
that we prepared you well for your future. Now I’d like to introduce
the President of Fresno State,
Dr. Joseph Castro. [ Applause ]>>Thank you, Bob. Good morning, everybody. So the Craig School likes to get
up early to celebrate, right? [ Cheers ] Love it. Well I’m very
happy to join you today for this special program. For our students, I
know that hard work and significant accomplishments
have brought you to this special day. And as the Dean just
said, I hope you agree that Fresno State
has prepared you well for success in your
chosen field. Parents, grandparents,
family members, and friends, I know this is a day that
you’ve been looking forward to with great pride and joy. And your love and support of our students during this
journey has been crucial. And I think you deserve a round
of applause for your role. [ Applause ] As our newest graduates
join the ranks of over 200,000 Fresno
State alumni, I’d like to share a
few thoughts with you. First you’re an important
part of the next generation of leaders in our Valley,
state, nation, and world. Our region with all of it’s
incredible strengths continues to face a number of
significant challenges. Among those challenges is
stubbornly high concentrations of poverty affecting so
many in our communities, especially our children. And for generations a quality
education has been a key path out of poverty for so many
including so many of you or me and many of my colleagues. And at — thank you. At Fresno State about 70 percent
of our students are the first in their families
to go to college. Congratulations. [ Applause ] As leaders, I urge you to support educational
opportunities for all of our youth in our
community and beyond. Second, I urge you to stay
engaged with Fresno State. Please visit us as
often as you can. I also ask that you share your
perspective with me, the Dean, and others here about
how the campus is doing in serving your needs and
our community’s needs. By continuing to
strengthen our university, I hope to inspire you
to send your children and your grandchildren to
Fresno State in future years. And I know there are parents
and grandparents who met here and went to Fresno State. And now their children are here, and that’s a wonderful
thing as well. Finally, and most importantly,
I encourage you to serve others in your profession and
in your communities. Leadership at its best requires
one to think about the good of the whole before
self-interest. While this may not always
be easy to do, you will find that focusing on the best
interest of the community with consistency and
integrity is contagious. And it will inspire
others to follow your lead. By sharing your many gifts
with others, you will help to strengthen our
region and beyond. And in doing so, you and
other leaders will help to pave the way for an
even more prosperous future for the generations to follow. Because of you, I am
optimistic about the future; and because of you, our best
days in the Valley lie ahead. Congratulations and best
of luck to all of you. Thank you so much. [ Applause ]>>Thank you so much,
Dr. Castro. Next I’d like to introduce our
provost, Dr. Lynette Zelezny. [ Applause ]>>Good morning, Craig School. [ Cheers ] Whoa! And congratulations
to all of the graduates. It is with great pride that
I join President Castro and my colleagues in
congratulating you for a accomplishing this
important milestone. You have earned the
university’s great respect. So congratulations. This is a significant
achievement. Today marks the end
of an amazing journey, one in which you have
overcome countless challenges through your hard
work, perseverance, and belief in yourself. It was a journey that would
not have been possible without the support of your
family and friends who have done so much to support and encourage
you as well as nurture you and help you to meet
this difficult and challenging but
rewarding goal. I also want to recognize
and thank your faculty, who have shared their
outstanding expertise and advice and mentored you and
challenged you along the way. After today, you will start
another journey, a new chapter; and I urge you to go
forward with confidence because of the skills
and the character that you have developed
at Fresno State. I encourage you to live
a life with meaning and to seek excellence in
everything that you pursue. Continue to push yourself,
challenge yourself, think creatively and
independently, and, most of all, always dream big and be bold. Congratulations, graduates. [ Applause ]>>Thank you, Dr. Zelezny. Before we hear from
the Dean’s medalists, I’d like to take a minute to
explain to you the meaning of some of the academic
regalia that’s being worn by our graduates. Our MBA and EMBA graduates will
be hooded with special hoods which designates their
advanced degrees. Undergraduate and graduate
students completing their degree with university honors,
which includes cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum
laude, and MBA with distinction, are wearing cords to display
their levels of honors and have asterisks or plus
signs next to their names in the Convocation program
beginning on page 4. These students represent the top
10 percent of our class of 2015. And please now would
the students graduating with university honors please
stand and be recognized. [ Applause ] 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 encouraged
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’d like to introduce
this year’s Dean’s Medalists. Please refer to their
profiles on pages 4 and 6 of your program. Our Graduate Dean’s Medalist
is Narinder Pal Singh. N.P., would you join me? [ Applause ] With a perfect 4.0, N.P. is
completing our Executive MBA Program, which provides
a perfect complement to his undergraduate
engineering degree. He’s currently a Vice President
with Olam International for whom he travels throughout
the world to monitor plants and operation in his division. Please welcome our graduate
Dean’s medalist, N.P. Singh. [ Applause ]>>Thank you, Dean Harper. Good morning.>>Good morning [audience].>>Congratulations
on your success. First of all, I would like
to thank God and my parents for their blessings and
thank my wife and daughter without whom I would
not be here. [ Applause ] Once Margaret Fuller said,
“If you have knowledge, let others light
their candles at it.” Look how many candles are lit
by Craig School of Business. I’m going to quote a
few lines from Olam CEO, Sunny Verghese, visionary
leader. And these are my
favorite quotes. “I want you to think about how
we should be defining success. This is the key inflection
point in our lives. At the end of the journey,
we need to look back and say, ‘Have we really achieved
success?’ And success is very
personal thing. And we can define it very
differently for each of us.” First, for me, success means
I have to achieve something. So we have to pick and
have some specific goals in the achievement box, which is
just one dimension of success. For a substantial
part of my life, I was under the mistaken notion that achievement is
all that matters. But now I am very clear. Achievement is only one
dimensional of success. The second box which we have
to tick in the definition of success is happiness. So we have to do things
that will make us happy and which will give us sense of satisfaction,
drive, and pleasure. The third dimension of success
is being of significance. So we have to be some
significance to others. That matters to us,
it could be family, our community, our friends. And the final success
dimension is that we have to leave the legacy behind. And legacy is not creating a
trust fund for our children that legacy is about
doing things it in a way that our successors will
find even more success. So as we embark on
this new journey, after achieving this
academic milestone, I would like to conclude
by wishing you all the best to find your own definition
of success and achieve it. I express my sincere
gratitude to all the professors and especially Dean
Harper, Professor Peyvandi, Professor Chen, Professor
Schmidtke, Professor Bommer, Professor Rice for providing
me encapsulating knowledge in such a short span of time. Thank you so much. [ Applause ]>>Thank you, NP. Our Undergraduate Dean’s
Medalist is Renan Rocha Lopez De Lima. Renan would you join me. [ Applause ] A Smittcamp Honors Scholar
with a 4.0 GPA and an option in Finance, Renan
has been active with the Collegiate
Entrepreneurs’ Organization, the Entrepreneurship Mentor
Program, and the student chapter of the Financial
Management Association. Renan gained valuable experience
through two internships, one with Regency
Investment Advisors and another with Rabobank. Upon graduation, he
will begin his career as an Associate Financial
Advisor for E&J Gallo. Please welcome Renan de Lima. [ Applause ]>>Well, thank you, Dr.
Harper for that introduction, and I thank you all
for the warm welcome. Appreciate that. So we’ve done it. We’re finally graduating. And the question
many of our friends and loved ones have
undoubtedly started to ask us is, ‘What’s next?’ For each of us, the
answer varies. Some of you know exactly
what the next step is. Maybe it’s a full time job,
for others, graduate school, maybe an internship, or
maybe even a backpacking trip through South America. And for others of
us, we have no idea. And we’re still trying
to figure things out. Regardless of whether
you’re leaving here to enter the full-time workforce
or leaving to catch a plane to backpack South
America, I want to share with you 3 things I have learned
in my time here at Fresno State that I believe are
especially noteworthy for us at this stage of our lives. First, be proud of what
you’ve published and take time to celebrate the
small and large wins. Every single one of us
worked incredibly hard to earn the right to sit
here in regalia today. Most of us balanced competing
commands and our time between school, work,
and life in general. Many of us are first
generation college students. And many of us have
already worked hard to make a meaningful impact
on the Fresno community. So don’t let competing
demands on your time rob you of celebrating the
accomplishments of today or any of the many future
accomplishments I know will come for the class of 2015. The second thing I’ve learned, I
want to share with you is this; find your passion, the
thing that drives you and gives your life
and career purpose. I’d be lying if I told you
I knew much about passion, and like many of you, I’m still
trying to figure it out myself. What I do know, though, is
that passion is grounded in the relationships
you have with people. It’s not in money or any
other material thing. From his first day on campus,
which many of us remember, Fresno State President Joseph
Castro has challenged the faculty, staff, and
students to be bold. As you search for
your passion, be bold. Look for meaningful
ways to give back. Look for ways to boldly improve
the lives around us both here in the Central Valley
and around the globe. The last thing I want to
share with you is this, appreciate the people
who have supported you. Thank them for investing
in your and for guiding you to where you are today. I would not be here if it
wasn’t for the mentorship or support I received from the
faculty at the Craig School of Business, the Camp Program, the Smittcamp Family
Honors College, my friends, and, of course, my family. In closing, I am both
humbled and excited that we, the Craig School Class
of 2015, leave here today to enter the world
and leave our mark. Remember to be proud and
celebrate, find your passion, and take time to appreciate
those who matter most. Thank you. [ Applause ]>>Thank you Renan. Okay, graduates and guests. This is the moment
you’ve been waiting for. [ Cheers ] We’ll now proceed to the individual
recognition of graduates. Each student’s name will be read by Fresno Pacific Faculty
Member, Dr. Marshall Johnston. I’d like to acknowledge
his efforts since he goes to great lengths 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 to either Tom Burns,
our MBA Program Manager, or Dr. James Schmidtke, our Graduate Program
Faculty Coordinator, who will be hooding
you this morning. Once hooded, cross the stage and
shake hands with me and remember to have your picture taken. You’ll be contacted by the
photographer through e-mail after this ceremony with a
proof of the photos to purchase. So now I’d like to invite
all the graduate faculty to 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. [ Background Sound ] [ Assumed Spellings ] Narinder Pal Singh. [ Applause ] Ying Chun. Christine Garabedian. Samantha Henson. [ Cheers ] Margarethe Alden
