VSU Camden Center Celebrates 2017 Commencement June 2

KINGSLAND — Valdosta State University will celebrate the academic achievements of 14 students when the Camden Center hosts its 2017 commencement ceremony at 3 p.m. on Friday, June 2.

Dr. Reynaldo L. Martinez Jr., head of VSU’s Department of Adult and Career Education, will deliver the keynote address. Dr. Brian L. Gerber, interim provost and vice president for academic affairs at VSU, will hand out degrees and congratulate each of the graduates.

“Graduation is a defining moment in every student’s life,” said Dr. Richard A. Carvajal, president of VSU. “These students have had to overcome any number of challenges to reach this point in their life’s journey. It is that very perseverance that protects and nurtures Blazer Nation’s 100-plus-year-old tradition of academic, creative, athletic, research, and service excellence. We are excited to celebrate not an ending but the beginning of many great things to come.”

VSU has served Camden, Charlton, Ware, Glynn, Nassau, and surrounding Georgia and Florida counties since 1983, first on the Kings Bay Submarine Base and now at the Camden Center.

The Camden Center serves a diverse student body, primarily nontraditional adult learners juggling work, family, and careers. Many of the students are military personnel and their family members.  

The Camden Center is located at 8001 Lakes Boulevard in Kingsland.
