UK seniors honored at Harambee Celebration

Harambee, meaning “Let Us Come Together,” is an intimate graduation ceremony that recognizes the individual, cultural and communal achievements of soon to be UK graduates. This year’s Harambee Celebration, honoring December 2018, May 2019 and August 2019 graduates, was held Thursday, May 2, in the Bluegrass Ballroom of the Lexington Convention Center.

The Harambee Celebration is an opportunity for the UK Office for Institutional Diversity (CARES, SSS, and CGD), Gatton College of Business and Economics, the UK Office of Admissions, the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment, and the UK Office of Graduate Academic Services to extend heartfelt congratulations to students as they prepare to graduate from UK. This gathering of parents, family members, friends, faculty and staff is designed to properly recognize and honor this very special moment.

Taunya Phillips, President-Elect of the UK Alumni Association, and Dr. Antoinette Davis with the Lyman T. Johnson Alumni Group spoke on behalf of the UK Alumni Association.

The evening’s keynote address was delivered by Melissa Moore Murphy ’98 AS, ’01 LAW from the Lexington-Fayette County Urban County Government Department of Law.
