A few graduating students from the Media Arts Department attended the Los Angeles Pierce College 66th Commencement Ceremony on Tuesday June 10, 2014. More than 500 Pierce graduates met at Rocky Young Park at 6 p.m. to celebrate their collegiate success.
Before turning their tassels the students listened to student speaker Krishna Lou Ayungao and keynote speaker Tavis Smiley, a broadcaster, author and currently a late-night talk show host on PBS. Graduates received their diplomas and shook hands with President Kathleen Burke and Trustee Scott J. Svonkin.
