By: Norman Martin
Hundreds of Texas Tech students, including 72 undergraduates from the Davis College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources, received diplomas at the university's spring commencement ceremonies on Saturday (Aug. 5) at the United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock.
Outstanding students carried banners representing their respective colleges with Charles Sabin, a natural resources management major from Lubbock, Texas, standing for Davis College. Administrators selected the banner bearers based on all-around achievement. Sabin was also the college's highest-ranking summer graduate.
In a point of pride, Davis College Dean Clint Krehbiel noted that Saturday's commencement speakers were from the Department of Animal & Food sciences and the Department of Agricultural & Applied Economics.
Luke Fuerniss, a graduating doctoral student focusing on animal science, served as the speaker for the morning graduate program. Following graduation he will serve as a beef geneticist at ST Genetics in Navasota, Texas. Meanwhile, Ashley Stoddard, a graduating senior from Angleton, Texas presented at the undergraduate program. During her time at Texas Tech, she was a pre-law ambassador and member of the Honor Society of Agriculture and the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association. After graduating Stoddard is set to work at Lubbock's Brady & Hamilton Law Firm.
