2 of 380 graduating today extol value of their YSU experience


For Sarah Stafford and Lesley Anne Roddy, their years of study at Youngstown State University were truly cross-cultural, international experiences.

Stafford made three study trips abroad as a YSU student, gaining what she called invaluable experiences that she will apply to her life and career. Roddy came to Youngstown from Ireland to pursue her goals and dreams. Both women were among the 380 students who graduated from YSU Saturday during summer commencement at Beeghly Center.

The featured speaker was Dr. Bege Bowers, who retired this summer after a career at YSU that began in 1984.
