UNM-Gallup celebrates 388 graduates during Spring 2024 Commencement 

鶹Ƶ-Gallup celebrated 388 graduates during its Spring 2024 Commencement at Angelo DiPaolo Memorial Stadium in Gallup, New Mexico, on Friday, May 10, 2024.

For the 2023-2024 academic year, UNM-Gallup issued 14 high school equivalency diplomas, 116 certificates, and 258 associate degrees among the graduating class.

UNM-Gallup Local Advisory Board members Ralph Richards, Raymond Calderon and Rebecca Apel led the procession, joined by New Mexico state Rep. Patricia Lundstrom, Rep. D. Wonda Johnson and Sen. Shannon Pinto.

American Legion Post 98 from Zuni, New Mexico, presented and posted the colors, accompanied by the drum group Zuni Knifewing. UNM-Gallup adjunct Jean Paul VanDerdys Vidal sang the national anthem in Spanish.

Shawn R. Jim, an alum of UNM-Gallup and TRIO/Student Support Services, was the keynote speaker for the ceremony. Jim earned his Associate of Arts in business administration in 2019 and now teaches Navajo language and culture with Gallup-McKinley County Schools. His achievements include voice acting for the Navajo-dubbed versions of the Clint Eastwood film “A Fistful of Dollars” and the hit children’s song “Baby Shark.”
