1graduation.jpgCEHD honored more than 500 undergraduates and 370 graduate students who participated in separate graduation ceremonies May 10. Gary Tinsley, Gopher football standout who died in his sleep on April 6, was also awarded his degree posthumously at the undergraduate ceremony in a special presentation including his family.

Both ceremonies featured Naomi Tutu, internationally known social activist, as speaker.

Local media covered the undergraduate ceremony extensively. See stories by the Pioneer Press, Fox 9, KSTP, WCCO, and KARE 11.
