Bryan President Dr. Stephen D. Livesay told the students they are to be “commended for rising to the top of your class. I’m impressed with the leadership you already have exhibited, the internships you will have this summer, among them two banking internships in Europe. For those of you who are graduating, I’m even more excited about what you will take with you from what you have learned at Bryan and the contributions you will make in society.”
