Family and friends of over 100 graduates filled the theater at the Miramar Cultural Center on July 13 to celebrate West Coast University-Miami's commencement. The pride was clear in each graduate's face as they crossed the stage to receive their diplomas.
“I'm am so proud to see all of you sitting in front of me today,” WCU-Miami executive director Dr. Joshua Padron said. “You are our newest addition to the WCU legacy and I hope that each of you continues your journey of discovery and growth throughout your careers and the rest of your life.”
Keynote speaker Kelley Johnson, RN took the stage to thank each student for joining the healthcare profession and share all that she has learned in her years as a nurse and healthcare advocate.
"I'm so honored to be here today," she said. "The whole intention of my speech is to really inspire these students but also to congratulate them. What a tremendous honor and award they've achieved today! I'm so excited to be apart of it."
