Thursday, May 10, 2018---USC Student-Athlete Graduation Celebration Part 2

Presentation of SeniorsPresentation of SeniorsAfter "Senior Speaker" Lazar Pasuljevic finished his speech and the Stevens Scholars Presentation finished, there was the "Presentation of Seniors." My husband Jim, who moved into the balcony on the south side, took these two videos of the vision board showing almost every USC Student-Athlete as he or she walked across the stage.

At the same time, Trojan Candy took still pictures of all my friends at the bottom of the ramp.

Randall and Randall W. CunninghamThere was a proud father congratulating Randall at the bottom of the ramp. He was Randall's NFL father, Randall W. Cunningham.

Now, all of the USC Student Athletes had walked across the stage, had their picture taken with their coach and A.D. Lynn Swann, walked down the ramp and received a gift from the USC Athletic Department. FIGHT ON, 2018 USC Student Athletes!

RecessionTrojan Candy went over to the east exit of the Galen Center to take this video of all of the Seniors proceeding outside to the Galen Center south steps for a class picture.
