Six undergraduates are graduating with honors: Brian Hernandez, Alexander Hernandez, Lauren Holliday, David Lehmkuhl, Gina Prochilo and Kelli Rike.

In addition, 12 graduate students will receive master’s degrees and four will receive doctorates.

Students receiving doctorates are Lynn Sims, Janet Marie Dowding,  Shahanawaz Sherali Jiwani, and Arpita A. Roy.

The commencement is scheduled for December 14 at 9 a.m. at the UCF Arena.

“The Burnett school is fortunate to have such outstanding students who go on to distinguish themselves in various positions after graduation,” said Dr. Richard Peppler, associate dean for faculty and academic affairs and interim director of the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences.  “I always enjoy following the progress of our students through their training as they mature through their hard work and through the efforts of our outstanding  faculty to reach this plateau in their career; that is, graduation.”
