Brazosport College’s Spring Commencement is scheduled for Saturday, May 14 at the Dow Academic Center. Two commencement ceremonies will be held, the first at 10 a.m. followed by another ceremony at 2 p.m.

The 10 a.m. commencement is for Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS) and Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) graduates, while the 2 p.m. commencement will be for Bachelor of Applied Technology (BAT), Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) graduates.

Dr. Solis, who will speak at both ceremonies, assumed Brazosport College’s presidency on Jan. 4 and is the fifth president in the school’s 53-year history.

A life-long educator with almost three decades of service in higher education, Dr. Solis earned a Doctor of Education in Bilingual Education; a Master of Science in Psychology; and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology from Texas A&M University – Kingsville in Kingsville, TX.

Dr. Solis has also been honored to share his own experiences and educational journey with many different audiences.  As the youngest of 11 children of migrant workers and a high school dropout, he shares his story of the transformative power that education can have on an individual.

This year’s Commencement will be an in-person ceremony and Brazosport College graduates from 2020 and 2021 are welcome to participate in the event.
