After a 13-year hiatus, Fresno State held a special recognition event Saturday honoring Asian American and Pacific Islander students who will earn diplomas at the university-wide commencement next week.
The event was the Fresno State Asian American and Pacific Islander Commencement Celebration. Its return was spearheaded by students and supported by members of the Asian and Faculty Staff Association, Asian-American students and community members, the university announced.
Fifty students were honored. Fresno State President Joseph Castro was the keynote speaker and Linda Vang, a candidate for a doctorate in educational leadership, was the student speaker.
