SAC holds 85th graduation ceremony

 

More than 900 graduates walk the stage at San Antonio College graduation


SAN ANTONIO, TX (May 13, 2013) – Rita Buck-Crockett, Olympian and coach, was recognized as the Outstanding Former Student for 2012-13 at San Antonio College’s 85th commencement ceremony Saturday at Freeman Coliseum. More than 900 students walked the stage to receive associate degrees and certificates from Dr. Robert E. Zeigler, college president and Dr. Robert Vela, vice president for academic and student success.  Grad_stageparty
 

Approximately 10,750 people attended the commencement. Some 40 Travis Early College High School students also received associate degrees. This is the second graduating class from Travis, part of the San Antonio Independent School District, and the next-door neighbor to SAC.   Principal Orlando Vera was also on hand to greet the Travis students.
 

Ms. Crockett,  assistant athletic director and volleyball coach for Florida International University, recalled  her years at SAC.
 

“My memories of starting my college career here at SAC and winning the National Junior College Athletics Association's National Volleyball Championships in 1975, while representing SAC, holds a special place in my heart. The benefits of being involved in athletics as a young lady on that level were paramount to my development as a person. Being a college athlete takes a lot of your time and energy, on top of having to do well in the classroom.
 

“As a student athlete at San Antonio College, I not only learned how to be a good student, but I also learned how to be a responsible, disciplined, and hard working teammate,” Ms. Crockett said.
 

Student speaker was Matthew Brunicardi, the Distinguished Graduate for the SAC International Studies program and a member of the Phi Theta Kappa. The theme of his speech was   “Don’t just talk about it, be about it!”
 

“It takes strong determination, and perseverance to acquire an education, and instead of just talking about going to school, each of you gave your words meaning the moment when you first enrolled at San Antonio College. But you didn’t just stop there, after today many of you will continue on to higher institutions of education, with the goal of completing your bachelor’s degrees and establishing promising careers,” he said.
 

Nancy Vargas spoke on behalf of the Travis Early College High School graduates. 
 

The SAC graduation was taped and will air on the Education Channel beginning at 7 p.m. May 17, May 25, and May 26.   (The Education Channel is Ch 98/Time Warner, Ch. 21/Grande Communications, and Ch. 99/AT&T Uverse)
