Local students graduate from St. Mary


LEAVENWORTH -- The University of Saint Mary marked the close of another academic year and the achievement of a major milestone in the lives of the USM class of 2014 at the university's commencement ceremony May 10 in McGilley Field House.

University faculty, students, and administration sent off the class with a day's worth of events-beginning with baccalaureate mass in Annunciation Chapel, continuing with a family brunch in Saint Joseph Dining Hall, highlighted by the stately ceremony in McGilley, and concluding with a reception on the front circle.

Local students are:

* Katelyn B. Dinkel, Hays, bachelor of science, summa cum laude.

* Celeste Nichole, Hays, bachelor of science in nursing.
