Twenty-six adult learners are participating in a Saint Leo University commencement ceremony in Tallahassee at 11 a.m., Saturday, May 7, at Tallahassee Community College.

The majority of the participants have earned the Bachelor of Arts degree in either criminal justice or psychology. In addition, graduate degrees will be conferred to three students, in the academic fields of business administration, criminal justice, and instructional design.

The new graduates will be addressed by Tallahassee Community College President Jim Murdaugh (pictured), who earned his doctorate in public administration from Florida State University. He also holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in criminology and is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force Reserve. He was called to active duty during both Gulf Wars.

In addition, two students have been selected to deliver class farewell addresses: Shawn C. Bezwiechin, who has earned the Bachelor of Arts cum laude in psychology; and John Bales, who graduates with the Bachelor of Arts cum laude in criminal justice.
