More than 350 graduates are eligible to cross the stage at Friday’s event

Tampa, FL—June 2016The faculty and staff of the Tampa campus of Keiser University, welcome family and friends to the commencement ceremony for the Class of 2016 on Friday, June 10.  The graduation will take place at Grace Family Church, located at 5100 West Waters Avenue in Tampa at 7:00 p.m.  The graduates will be given their keynote address by Representative Blaise Ingoglia.


The Tampa campus is pleased to announce their valedictorian, Sheila Gomez who has earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree.  Tue Nguyen is the salutatorian for this graduating class and earned his Bachelor of Science in Forensic Investigations.

“Each of our students has an exceptional story that has made this journey to graduation a momentous occasion for them and it is an honor for each of us at the Tampa campus to be able to be a part of their educational experience,” shared Brandon Barnhill, Campus President.  “We look forward to the successes they each achieve once they begin their new career paths in their new fields.”


One of the examples of forging ahead to succeed would be Pablo Torres.  After earning his Associate of Arts degree in Paralegal Studies he wanted to continue to reinforce the knowledge he had learned and expand his base of expertise.  He reenrolled to earn his Bachelor of Arts in legal Studies.  During the time he earned his bachelor’s degree he was faced with working, living, and going to school all in different cities and having to appropriately manage his time to get from place to place.  Also, during his last semester he moved to Orlando but didn’t let the new city deter him from achieving his goal as he completed the program online.  


Representative Blaise Ingoglia, will serve as the keynote speaker for this graduating class.  The Representative was elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2014 and currently serves on the Economic Affairs Committee, Government Operations Appropriations Subcommittee, Government Operations Subcommittee, and the Veteran & Military Affairs Subcommittee. As an entrepreneur he opened his first business, a mortgage company, and has subsequently opened a homebuilding company, Hartland Homes.  His most recent business venture is the software company he has started.
