[ Music ] [ Cheering ] [ Music ] [ Cheering ] [ Music ]>>Ladies and gentlemen, please remain standing
and join Alejandra Tejeda, Fresno State student, as she leads us in singing the National Anthem.>>[Singing] Oh, say can you see? By the dawn’s early light. What so proudly we hailed at
the twilights last gleaming. Whose broad stripes and bright
stars, through the perilous fight. Or 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? Or the land of the free and the home of the brave. [ Cheering ]>>A special thank you to Alejandra. And candidates and guests please be seated. My name is Valerie Vuicich, I’m the
Administrator for Career Technical Education at the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools
Office and a proud of alum of Fresno State. And I would like to thank you for being
here tonight to celebrate the achievements of these students of the class of 2017. We ask that you follow us on Twitter, Facebook,
and Instagram, and please share your photos with us by using our hashtags: #KremenGrad17
and #FresnoStateGrad. And we ask that all students remain seated throughout
the ceremony out of respect of your fellow graduates. It is now my honor and privilege to introduce
to you our Fresno State administrators. Please stand as I introduce you and audience, please
hold your applause until all have been introduced. President Joseph Castro, Provost Lynnette Zelezny,
Vice President for Student Affairs, Frank Lamas, Vice Provost Dennis Nef, Vice President
for University Advancement Paula Castadio, Chief Informational Officer, Orlando Leon, Vice President for Administration/Interim Chief
Financial Officer Deborah Adishian-Astone, Dean of Graduate Studies James
Marshall, Associate Dean Sarah Lam, and Dean of Undergraduate Studies Xuanning Fu. Thank you. [ Applause ] It is now time to hear from the President
of Fresno State, Dr. Joseph Castro. [ Applause ]>>Good evening Kremen School. How are you doing tonight? [ Cheering ] I think we saved the best for last tonight. [ Cheering ] Well, this is an exciting celebration
and I’m so happy that you’re all here. For our students, I know that hard work and significant
accomplishments have brought you to this special day. And I hope that you’ll agree that the Kremen School and Fresno State have prepared
you well for success in education. And parents, and grandparents, and other relatives and
friends — and there are a lot of them here today — I know that this has been a day that you’ve been
looking forward to with anticipation and joy. And your love and support of all of our student
here during their journey has been essential, and I think you deserve a round of applause. Thank you so much. [ Applause ] Many of you tonight are the first generation
in your family to graduate from a university. [ Cheering ] You are blazing a trail for others to follow. And other students here are part of a tradition
of Fresno State graduates in their family. I commend all of you for achieving
this important marker in your life. Great job. [ Cheering ] As our newest graduates, you join the
ranks of over 220,000 Fresno State alumni. And I wanted to share a few thoughts with you tonight. First, you are part of an essential
emerging generation of leader’s right here in the valley, state, nation, and world. And as emerging leaders you have the
opportunity and the responsibility to model civil and respectful dialog in our communities. In this ever more complex world, our society needs
thoughtful leaders who can help build consensus around innovative solutions to challenging problems. Second, I urge you to stay engaged with Fresno State. Join the Fresno State Alumni
Association and visit as often as you can. I also ask that you share your
perspective with me as often as you wish. About how our campus is doing in serving our community. And I hope that you’ll be inspired — and
maybe some of you already have done this — to send your children and your
grandchildren to Fresno State in future years. And finally, and most importantly, I encourage you
to serve others in education and in our communities. Leadership at its best requires one to think beyond
self-interest and more about the greater good. And 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
will inspire others to follow your lead. And by sharing your many gifts with others, you will
help to strengthen our Central Valley 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. Now educators, I want you to keep in mind, you see
a second or third grader, a little boy or girl, who’s a little quiet in the corner
— support them, nurture them. That was me not too long ago, and that
might be a successor of mine in the future. So please take care of all of our students. We need you to do that. Finally, I urge you to be bold, be
proud, and be a Bulldog for life. Congratulations. Thank you. [ Applause ]>>It is now my honor and privilege to
introduce the Provost, Dr. Lynnette Zelezny. [ Applause ]>>Thank you and good evening educators and counselors. It’s wonderful to be with you tonight. It is with great pride that I
offer my sincere congratulations for achieving this significant milestone. Graduating from Fresno State. The entire university community salutes
you for this outstanding accomplishment. Today marks the completion and
celebration of an amazing journey. One in which many of you persevered through countless
challenges and perhaps setbacks, with hard work, perseverance, and an unwavering belief in yourself. You’ve arrived as successful
graduates and future leaders. As you celebrate with your family, friends, and your
outstanding faculty and staff here in the Kremen School who supported you on your academic journey,
please remember that your success brings with it a responsibility to give back. I encourage you to commit to being engaged
civic-minded citizens who strive to make life better for your families and your communities. Live your lives with meaning, passion,
and seek excellence in every endeavor. Continue to challenge, think
creatively, and independently. And most of all, to never give up on your dreams. After today, you will begin another journey. In these exciting and demanding times you
will face some challenges along the way. But I’m confident — very confident that the skills
you’ve honed and the character you have developed at Fresno State has prepared you to go boldly
and to fulfill your greatest ambitions. Please accept my heartfelt best wishes to each and
every one of you for a truly successful future. Congratulations and good luck. [ Applause ]>>And now I would like to introduce the
Dean of the Kremen School of Education and Human Development, Dr. Paul Beare. [ Applause ]>>I think you see why they are the
leaders of the faculty in this university. I’m very proud that they’re here today. I want to thank all of you for joining us as we honor
your daughters, sons, spouses, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, uncles, partners, and friends. [ Applause ] I would like to start by thanking our entire dedicated
faculty of the Kremen School and Human Development. We’re doing it a little differently this year and
they’re kind of scattered all through the student body. These faculty work tirelessly to support our students, so they in turn can transform the lives
of those they teach, lead, or consul. Will all the faculty — wherever they
are — please stand to be recognized? [ Applause ] Thank you. Three faculty are retiring this year and have
been elected as Professors Emeritus or Emerita. Would they stand? I think most of them are on stage. Dr. Shireen Abramson in Early Childhood Education, Dr.
Jack Benninga a leader in Civic and Character Education and Chair Emeritus of the Curriculum and
Instruction department, and Dr. Susan Tracz, long time Graduate Coordinator,
leader in Educational Research, and well known by the doctoral
students as you can tell. Also retiring this year is Dr. Linda Hauser, chair
of Educational Leadership and Administration. [ Applause ] I am starting my 15th year as
dean of the Kremen School. I inherited an outstanding faculty and since that time
amazingly, we have hired 66 new tenure track professors who equal or exceed the quality of their predecessors. In the last five years a number of
our faculty have been recognized as the Provost Outstanding New
Faculty at the university. And I would like them to stand, Dr. Juan Carlos
Gonzales, Janelle Pitt, Linda Hauser, Fred Nelson — who’s one of the readers today
— Cathy Yun, and Lisa Bennett. And this year Dr. Alicia Becton from rehab, and
Susana Hernandez from higher end leadership. [ Cheering ] In educator preparation, last year we
produced more teachers than any public or single campus university in California. Our credential program has been honored with
both the Christa McAuliffe Award for Excellence in Educator Preparation and the America Association
of Colleges for Teacher Education Award for Excellence in Professional Ethics and Moral dispositions. The National Council for Teacher
Residencies has featured us three times as a model program on how to prepare teachers. Now, we have created — and
you’ll see this in your program — we’ve created the Liberal Studies Department, our first
Liberal Studies faculty are featured in your program. And that deserves a round of applause. [ Applause ] The Fresno Family Counseling Center is enjoying its
first full year in its new location at Shaw and Palm. Again, delivered 10,000 hours of low
cost or free services to our community. It is the envy of counseling programs at
every level, everywhere in the nation. The Rehabilitation Counseling Program — or now it’s
Mental Health and Rehabilitation Counseling Program — is the highest nationally ranked
graduate program on our campus. The Doctoral Program in Educational
Leadership was the first and most successful independent doctorate in the CSU. This summer we will admit the second cohort of students
into our on-line doctorate, operated in collaboration with Channel Islands, and that’s
the first such program in the CSU. I don’t know if a lot of Cal State’s —
any Cal State’s Teach graduates out there? Good. We have — it’s a little-known secret. We have over 630 students enrolled in our
on-line Cal State Teach credential program, which is more than half of all
those in all of California. Our newest venture is — we call
the South Valley Initiative. We want to not just transform Fresno,
we want to extend our reach down south. And on the stage today with me — if she would
stand — is Dr. Luz — Dean Luz Gonzalez. A graduate of the Kremen School, by the way. [ Applause ] Luz Gonzalez is leading Fresno State
at the College of the Sequoias. Working with Dean Gonzalez, Dr. Fred Nelson
— also on the stage and already introduced and reading the names — have received funding
to develop a four-year combined credential and Liberal Studies degree with one more semester
getting a bi-lingual authorization, multiple subject. I’d really like everybody to thank Dr.
Gonzalez for all she does and has done for our students for such a long time. [ Applause ] Our programs are just — are absolutely great. Wherever you look at them. At this time, I would like to
introduce Associate Dean Dr. Sarah Lam. [ Applause ]>>Thank you, Dr. Beare, and good evening. In order to graduate with honors a student must receive
a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher with a minimum of 45 units taken here at Fresno State. Would the Liberal Studies candidates graduating
with honors please stand and be recognized? [ Applause ] You may be seated. Every year the Kremen School of Education and
Human Development recognizes outstanding students in our teaching credential programs who have
shown tremendous growth and professionalism in their pursuit of earning a teaching credential. Would the Outstanding Credential
awardees please stand and be recognized? [ Applause ] You may be seated. And now, we honor, the Master’s Degree Candidates
who produced an Exemplary Project and Thesis. The students are nominated by faculty within the
Kremen School of Education and Human Development. I would like to ask all of these
students to stand as the faculty, staff, your family and friends recognize your amazing efforts. [ Applause ] Please be seated. Among these outstanding projects and
thesis, two stood out as the very best. We would like to especially recognize Renee Kinman
for the Kremen School Outstanding Thesis and Mary Vang for the Kremen School Outstanding
Project, please stand to be recognized. [ Applause ] You may be seated.>>The Dean’s medalist and Standard Bearers are chosen
for having shown outstanding service to the community and for their education achievement in general. This year’s Standard Bearers are
KC Rivera and Guadalupe Arriaga. Please come forward as we acknowledge
your outstanding accomplishments. [ Applause ] Today KC Rivera is graduating cum
laude with BA in Liberal studies. She came to the United States from
the Philippines at age five and, like many of you is first gen. She is graduating
in four years having been the Kremen ASI senator, a student coordinator and orientation leader for
Dog Days, an officer with the Build a Teacher club. She has been a cheer coach for Oroz —
that should make Dr. Gonzalez stand up — Orosi High School and a judge for academic decathlon. Guadalupe Arriaga has been incredibly engaged
as she as completed her undergraduate degree. She has been a member of California Mini-Corps, providing direct instruction
for diverse migrant students. She has worked for the California Teaching
Fellows since 2015 using reading mastery and corrective reading programs
with small groups of students. She helped students at SAM Academy
with robotic construction. She has worked with Univision
enlisting people in healthcare programs. To afford school she has also worked
in the fields, harvested grapes, and run a lunch track — truck in Fresno. She has done all this while excelling in the
classroom, excelling as a tutor, and guide for youth. I am very proud of Guadalupe and KC. Thank you both for choosing to be teachers. [ Applause ] I would now like to introduce you to
this year’s Graduate Dean’s Medalist, Suzanne Brand, please join me welcoming her. [ Applause ] I saw Suzanne’s four blonde children filing in later. I think they must be over there. Suzanne was a classroom teacher at
Weldon Elementary for six years. She left her position and created a private preschool
as her family increased to four children of her own. For the last three years, while managing her school, she has been a graduate student
and assistant at Fresno State. Professor Cathy Yun stated that Suzanne regularly
connects coursework to her own practice and is able to be reflective on the relationship
of theory to teaching. Through her master’s project, Suzanne
is making a unique contribution in developing an undergraduate Liberal Studies Capstone
course that will focus on cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development from birth through adolescence and how developmental issues are
related to the practice of teaching. Suzanne’s employed by our Next
Generation of Educators Initiative grant from the Bechtel Foundation in two different roles. One is coaching pre-service teacher candidates in our
Early Childhood Cohort partnership in Central Unified and as a research assistant
with Professors Yun and Bennett. I am extremely pleased to introduce Suzanne,
this year’s Graduate Dean’s medalist. [ Applause ]>>Good evening, thank you Dr. Beare. That was very nice of you to say. First, Class of 2017 congratulations. You made it! You’re here. Every one of you has sacrificed a
lot to get to where you are today, and you should be extremely
proud of your accomplishments. But don’t stop here. Don’t see this as the end of the road. See it as the beginning of a new one. Never stop pushing yourself to be better. Find something you love to do,
and be passionate about it. Be a good person and surround yourself with good
people, people that look for the good in others, and don’t judge others for their faults,
because every one of us has them. And, finally, remember to look back and
think of all those people that helped you and inspired you to get to where you are today. There’s no way I would be here
without the help and inspiration of so many faculty, and friends, and family. Dr. Yun, I know you’re out there. Your guidance and advice has been
so thoughtful and encouraging. I admire your drive and your unstoppable nature. Dr. Chen, and Dr. Benninga, and Dr. Billon, the wisdom
you have shared with all of us has been immeasurable, and I look forward to working
with all of you in the future. To my mom, JoAnn and my mother in law, Donna,
my sisters, Jen and Diane, my extended family, and my friends, who are here, who I consider my family, for the countless times you have
supported both me and my family. You have watched my children when I had to go to class, you took pictures of my kids
when I couldn’t be at events. You gave them rides when I couldn’t be there. You lifted me up when I was exhausted and you
celebrated me at the end of every semester. I could not thank you enough. And last, and most importantly, I want to thank my
husband Jeremy, and my children, Cole, Anabelle, Carter and Addison, you guys have
sacrificed so much over the last few years for me to be here, and I appreciate it. Allowing me to hide in my bedroom and type papers. Bringing me snacks and water so I could keep going,
reading countless pages of my work and editing for me. And not complaining when I couldn’t
be there for something. You were my biggest cheerleaders through this whole
process, and I could not imagine it without you. Class of 2017, it’s time to celebrate. Congratulations. It’s your turn to inspire the next generation. Thank you. [ Applause ]>>That was a little confusing. Eric Calderon-Phangrath, is our
Undergraduate Deans Medalist. Will you step forward? [ Applause ] Eric is the perfect embodiment of someone who
is dedicated to transforming the lives of others as he pursues his own education and career. His parents are first generation Laotian-Americans who
worked in the fields to give their children a new life. Now Eric is working to give a new life to others. Eric was in ESL until 5th grade when he tested out,
now he is tri-lingual — as in three languages. He graduated from Edison Computech a year
early and started at Fresno State 12 years ago. When his brother, who was in Iraq — was blown up
by an IED and suffered burns over 80% of his body. Eric left school and relocated to Seattle
to care for his brother during his recovery. While there he obtained an AA
degree in Hospitality Management. 2012 he returned to Fresno State
while working as a Hotel Manager. Again, to pursue his Bachelor’s degree, but after three
semesters he took another break from school when he and his husband became foster parents. They ended up adopting three children from the
foster care system including two with disabilities. In 2016, with his household stabilized, Eric
enrolled in Fresno State for the third time. He has succeeded wonderfully, graduating
and entering the credential program to be a special education teacher. Professor Cheryl McDonald said, “Eric is a
gifted, compassionate, highly ethical person with the heart and skills to be superb educator. He is exceptional.” Eric is highly active in the community besides being
a student, substitute teacher, and full-time dad. He volunteers with the Fresno County Resource Family
Unit, is part of the Quality Parent Initiative, the local Adoptive Parent Association, and is active
in the Site Council and PTA at Vinland Elementary. Eric has had a 12-year journey to
success in and out of Fresno State. He would not be the same person if he hadn’t
provided so much care for others and gone straight through the university as he sped through high school. The tests he has passed as a caring person have made
him a graduate to whom we can all be incredibly proud. I am extremely pleased to introduce Eric
Calderon-Phangrath, the Kremen School of Education and Human Development Undergraduate
Dean’s Medalist for 2016 [ Applause ]>>Good Evening, I stand before you tonight as a
proud graduate of Fresno State and am deeply honored to be awarded the Undergraduate Dean’s Medal for the
Kremen School of Education and Human Development. As Dr. Beare said, my journey through
Fresno State has been a non-traditional one. I started here over 12 years ago, in
2005 as a young 17-year-old freshman and had to take a couple breaks to focus on my family. Over the course of those 12-years,
a lot has happened to me. I relocated to Seattle, came back
to Fresno and married my best friend and biggest cheerleader, my husband Carlos. We became foster parents and have adopted
some amazing boys with unique abilities due to their medical history and their trauma. My boys have taught me to be a better
parent and to put their needs before my own. They, along with Mrs. Cheryl McDonald have inspired me to pursue my degree and credentials
in special education. I would like to personally thank Cheryl
for pushing me to be a better student and for giving me the confidence to
be a teacher in special education. Cheryl, I know you’re out there. I’m not sure where you are. Thank you so much for inspiring me
and for mentoring me over these years and I look forward to continue to working with you. I would also like to thank my parents, Lynn and Victor
for leaving their war-torn countries over 30-years ago and for affording my siblings and me all the
opportunities that we’ve been fortunate to have. My eldest brother Chantha — who Dr.
Beare mentioned — was injured in Iraq. He’s now a Purple Heart War Vet and
serves as a Federal Police Officer. [ Applause ] My two sisters — Vicki and Judy — who are
both Nurses and my youngest brother, David, who will be finishing up Nursing School in December. We wouldn’t be where we are today without Mom and Dad. I’d also like to recognize my extended
family, the Phangrath’s and the Calderon’s, thank you for being there to help with our kids, for
being there to cheer us on when times were tough. And to my mother-in-law Yolanda,
who is watching over us. Thank you for loving me as your son
and for teaching me to never give up. I hope you are dancing your heart out and rejoicing. And to my fellow graduating class, congratulations! As we move on to our next adventure,
for some that’s the credential program, for others that may be somewhere else. However, know that everything
that you’ve worked so hard for over the years has brought you to this very moment. So, take that in, and be proud of your accomplishments! And again, thank you and congratulations graduates! [ Applause ]>>Yesterday we had the dinner for the Deans
Medalist and we found out that Eric got a job, one hour before the dinner to teach
Special Ed in Fresno Unified Next Fall. Very proud. [ Applause ]>>Ladies and gentlemen, we now ask Dr. Kenneth
Magdaleno, Director of the Doctoral Program to come to the podium and speak about our Kremen School of
Education and Human Development’s Doctoral Program.>>Thank you Valerie. It is my pleasure to speak to you
on behalf of the Doctoral Program. The Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership is
designed to enhance the talents and skills of the best and brightest individuals, who plan to
devote their lives to the implementation of educational practices informed by research. We are extremely honored to recognize
the Doctoral Degree Candidates. Doctoral Degree Candidates,
