A full crowd gathered just before sunset on June 9 to watch Perrotis students walk proudly to receive their diplomas.
Connections with the University of California, Davis punctuated the night’s proceedings as Dr. Linda Katehi, Chancellor Emerita and Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC Davis took the stage to deliver the keynote address. The events also included the conferral of the Athinoula A. Martinos Endowed Professorship to Perrotis professor and University of California alumnus Dr. Christos Vasilikiotis, who came to us after earning a doctorate for his distinguished work in the field of agronomy.
In turn, graduates were addressed with words of advice, encouragement, and overwhelming pride from Perrotis College President Dr. Panos Kanellis, Perrotis College Academic Dean Dr. Athanasios Tsaftaris and Dean of the School for Professional Education Dr. Evangelos Vergos. The speakers expressed the College’s hope and belief that the graduates will take with them the values learned and reinforced here: service, trust, commitment, and gratitude. After the ceremony, distinguished guests, alumni and faculty attended a reception at the Aliki Perroti Student Residence roof garden.
We join them in wishing our newest alumni all the best in their journeys to come!
