NLC Commencement To Be Held at Loos Fieldhouse

 
IRVING, Texas- Approximately 350 North Lake College students will graduate on Saturday, May 12 at Alfred J. Loos Fieldhouse in Addison. The 10 a.m. commencement ceremony will feature guest speaker Wesley Jameson.
 
A newly appointed DCCCD Board of Trustees member, Jameson speech is titled "Celebrate the Journey of Reaching Your Goals." He hopes to remind students that no matter where they want to go in life, it’s important to enjoy the journey.
 
“People need to have fun- to really enjoy the successes they have when striving for their goals,” said Jameson. “As a person who graduated from college a long time ago, and has worked in all the jobs I have, I look back and realize setting goals is critical in achieving success. But it’s also critical to have a good time. It’s about enjoying the journey.”
 
Joining Jameson on stage will be student speaker Jeong Lee. President of North Lake’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and Secretary of the Student Government Association, Lee will be attending the University of Texas at Arlington on a full scholarship this fall where her intended major is Social Work.  “I am very honored to be the graduation speaker,” said Lee who will speak to her classmates inside one of the largest gymnasiums nationwide. “I will be mostly talking about who I was when I first started here…and how being here changed me.”
 
The biggest gym outside Indiana, Loos Fieldhouse will offer family and friends seating on a first come, first serve basis. Additionally, no tickets will be required. Guests with special needs may be seated on the arena floor alongside up to two family members. 
 
The Alfred J.  Loos Fieldhouse is located at 3815 Spring Valley Road, Addison TX 75001.
