The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is constantly evolving to make our programs more akin to what is going on in the field right now.
For this reason, we are very proud of our graduates and the bright futures in front of them.
Before the graduation ceremony, we hosted a small dinner to celebrate the wonderful achievements of our graduates. We were were thrilled to have Ashlee Rose, a singer and songwriter from San Antonio, perform at this year's annual graduation party.
This year's commencement speaker was Dr. Bettie Sue Masters, a Robert A. Welch Distinguished Professor in Chemistry at UT Health Science Center.
Her speech, "The Paths We Choose," touched upon important choices that she has made in her own career and how making the right choices is more important than having the perfect plan.
"We can't map out our destinies but we can prepare our minds to take advantage of the opportunities that arise," Masters said. "Making the right choices becomes imperative."
In addition to making right choices, Masters stressed the importance of having a support system such as family or friends.
"Serendipity becomes the effect of responding to these opportunities," she said. "You graduates have been provided the tools you need to pursue whatever opportunities or fates that confront you."
