Trident Community, we hope you had the opportunity to attend (in person or online via streaming) our annual commencement ceremony on Saturday, July 15th. It is particularly special at Trident because it’s the first time that faculty and staff meet face-to-face with the students with whom they have developed such meaningful relationships.
316 graduates attended with the loving support of over 2,000 friends and family! Another 4,300 watched online as Dr. Elston Steele became the first graduate to both sing the national anthem and deliver the student keynote address. He holds the distinct honor of being a rare Trident Triple™, having completed his bachelors, masters, and Ph.D. with our university!
Trident also celebrated its 20th anniversary during the ceremony. There have been countless achievements during our first two decades, the most important being the impact of over 30,000 alumni on their respective communities. We are incredibly proud of our Trident alumni and the contributions they continue to make to protect, serve, and strengthen our nation.
While we’ve included a link to the full ceremony above, in the next month we will share a commencement highlights video. For now, check out three short videos that we showed during the ceremony that will make you even more proud to be Trident Strong!
