COLLEGE STATION, Texas –Two students in the Forensic and Investigative Sciences program received an early Christmas gift this December as they walked the stage during commencement exercises on Friday, December 14.
Kortney Parchman and Alex Weghorst joined more than a thousand Aggies from the Forensic and Investigative Sciences during the 9am ceremony Friday morning.
Before the ceremonies, parents and students heard some good political humor and insight from American political consultant Mary Matalin as she spoke during a special convocation held Thursday night.
Friday’s events included a special reception for parents and families of students held on the fourth floor atrium. Excitement was in the air as most students shared memories of their years in the Department. Proud parents also got a chance to take photos of their children with professors and other members.
Alex Weghorst’s father Hank Weghorst was excited and for his son graduating and praised the Forensics program for being an excellent program.
“We have been very pleased with the Forensics program and what it has meant to him and our family,” Weghorst said. “It’s been a good run.”
Dr. Jeff Tomberlin was excited to see Parchman graduate and was proud of her for her accomplishments.
“It’s been a great experience having Kortney go through the program,” he said. “She is very bright and has an exceptional future in front of her.”
