Creating a Legacy: Broadview University Graduation, Spring 2015

Published on June 23, 2015 by arothstein


Orem Graduates: Jenn Duthie, Britney Bambace, Kim Laidler, and Nicole Mellor Olsen

Motivation speaker and author, Steven R. Covey said, “There are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfillment. The essence of these needs  is captured in the phrase ‘to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy.’” BEAU student, Logan Beard challenged his fellow graduates to leave a legacy. He challenged them to ask themselves, “Did I do what I came here to do?”

Logan was one of three student graduates that spoke at the Spring 2015 graduation for the four Utah Broadview Universities. The graduation ceremony was held Friday, June 12, 2015 at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley, Utah. Of the 33 graduates, four students from Broadview Orem walked in the graduation ceremony. They were Britney Bambase (MA), Jenn Duthie (VT), Kimberly Laidler (VT), and Nicole Mellor Olsen (VT). Nicole also spoke as one the student speakers. She quoted the Chinese philosopher Confucius: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” That summarizes the

philosophy at Broadview University: to help our student excel and get their dream job, whether it is as a Veterinary Technician, Medical Assistant, Paralegal, or one of the other programs offered.

Honored during the ceremony was Britney Bambace, the Graduate of the Quarter from the Orem Campus. Britney has been an inspiration to all of the other students as she has persevered with her program while caring for young children and having her husband deployed. In spite of challenges she was always willing to help her fellow MA students, tutoring and mentoring others.

Also honored was Faculty of the Quarter, Veterinary instructor Kylee Poulsen. Kylee has the distinction of being one of our graduates who, after working several years as a Veterinary Technician, came back to teach full-time.

Graduation is always the high point of the year at Broadview University: to see our students through to completion and launched on their way to their dream job.
