Brittney Hunter of Guyton has earned the Bachelor of Science in Biology from Valdosta State University.
Hunter was among nearly 500 undergraduate and graduate students who completed the requirements for their respective degrees during the Summer 2017 semester.
"Graduation is a defining moment in every student's life," said Dr. Richard A. Carvajal, president of VSU. "We are excited to pay tribute to the outstanding efforts of our summer graduates and celebrate education as the foundation upon which success is built. These students have had to overcome any number of challenges to reach this point in their life's journey. It is that very perseverance that protects and nurtures Blazer Nation's 100-plus-year-old tradition of academic, creative, athletic, research, and service excellence. This celebration is not an ending but the beginning of many great things to come."
