On May 10, the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences held its Spring Convocation Ceremony in the Domenici Center Auditorium.  The auditorium was completely full, with a flood of friends and family showing support for new graduates.

During convocation, a plaque was dedicated to honor Dr. Richard B. Hood, a longtime faculty member in the department who passed away last year.  Dr. Hood also sponsored a scholarship to support incoming graduate students, which continues to offer critical assistance to students every year.  Mrs. Suzanne Hood attended the dedication and met a pair of recent awardees, Cory Rodriguez and Jennifer Romero, pictured here with Dr. Barbara Rodriguez.

We have some great pictures from the event; to view them all, please visit our department Facebook page at
