LaTanya Hughes has been selected as Student Speaker. Hughes, a Maize and Blue recipient, is from Houston, Texas.

The Speaker for this year’s commencement is David Zick a 1973 UM-Flint graduate. Over the past several years, his generosity to the university has funded a number of scholarships.

A new tradition will be started at the ceremony. A student veteran, dressed in uniform, will be the flag bearer. It is just one more way of paying tribute to our student veterans.

Volunteers are needed to help make commencement run smoothly. Help is needed with setting up, seating guests, handing out programs, and helping students get ready for graduation. Volunteers are needed between noon and 3 p.m. to assist with these duties.

If you are interested in volunteering for this very special event, please contact Pam Zemore at 810-424-5485 or by email at pzemore@umflint.edu
