Ryan is a senior member of the Business Honors Program and the University Honors Program. He is double majoring in Management Information Systems and Operations and Supply Chain Management. Chelsea is a junior member of the Business Honors Program, who is majoring in Finance. They were each selected from a pool of the university’s high-achieving students to serve as Student Marshals for the December 2017 Commencement ceremony. Ryan and Chelsea led in distinguished faculty during the ceremony for the College of Arts and Architecture, the Belk College of Business, the College of Computing and Informatics, the William States Lee College of Engineering, and the College of Health and Human Services.
It was an honor to be selected, and witness the graduation of thousands of fellow Niners who have tired endlessly to earn their degree. One graduate walked across the stage after starting their degree over 40 years ago. The pomp and circumstance truly celebrated the great things that the now alumni will go on to do in the Charlotte community and beyond. No matter the length of time it takes one to earn their diploma from UNC Charlotte, the lessons learned and memories made here are invaluable in claiming one’s stake in post-graduation.
