LSU SHREVEPORT TO HOLD SPRING 2016 COMMENCEMENT

May 13, 2016

The LSU Shreveport Spring Commencement ceremony is set for Sunday, May 15, 2016 at 2 p.m. at CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, LA. Among the participants, 391 degrees will be awarded to graduates who have completed programs in the College of Arts & Sciences, and the College of Business, Education and Human Development. 

“Our graduates are beginning a new and bright future that each and every one of them has worked so hard to build,” said Chancellor of LSU Shreveport, Larry Clark. “Our wish for them is that they remember everything they have learned at LSU Shreveport and go forward with the confidence that they are primed and ready for all that lies ahead.”

The commencement address will be given by Ms. Sarah Kirkpatrick, J.D., current president of the LSUS Alumni Association.

Kirkpatrick received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Louisiana State University at Shreveport, cum laude, in 1993, where she was inducted into the Omicron Delta Kappa leadership honor society. In 1996, she received her Juris Doctor degree from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University, where she was inducted into Phi Kappa Phi and served on the Louisiana Law Review.

 

Over the course of her career, Ms. Kirkpatrick has been an active member of her community, both within the legal profession as a partner at Bradley Murchison Kelly & Shea, LLC, and in the community-at-large. Most recently, she has helped initiate a new alumni association for Caddo Parish Magnet High School. She is also serving on, and offering her services to, the Board for Hope for the Homeless, Inc., an organization dedicated to ending the homeless cycle. She has previously held office in both the Shreveport Bar Association and the Shreveport Bar Foundation Pro Bono Project, served, by appointment of the Caddo District Judges, on the Caddo Parish Indigent Defense Board of Directors, and served on the Louisiana Association of Defense Counsel Board, where she instituted a new continuing education programs for younger members.
