ALAMOSA — Adams State University released the fall 2012 commencement on Saturday, Dec. 15, in Plachy Hall. Adams State awarded 155 undergraduate degrees in the fall ceremony.  

The commencement address was given by Zoila Gomez, Adams State alumna 2004. Her speech, “There Is No Shortcut to Success,” addressed her experience in college and the essential importance of education.

“My success is linked to education and what it has done for me,” she said. “My story may not be the same as the graduating seniors, but we all share dreams and aspirations and now they are one step closer to who they want to be.”

Mary Griffin, vice chair of the Adams State Board of Trustees, conveyed the greetings from the board, and Matthew Martinez delivered the 2012 class message.
