Campus president Larry Hohl delivered the keynote address. As the top-performing student of his class, William Amelog was the graduate student speaker and offered the class address. Hohl and Becky Hoskins, director of education management, presented the diplomas to the graduating students.
These 11 graduates and additional students who will graduate in the coming months comprise the inaugural class that started when the school opened its doors on August 17, 2015. These current and future graduates will have their handprints cast in concrete on the walkway at the entrance of the school to commemorate their contribution as the first graduating class at UTI-Long Beach.
