The morning commencement for the College of Allied Health Sciences featured President Joseph Stiefel who addressed massage therapy certificate and bachelor of science degree graduates. His address traced how a myriad of influences on our outlook and education had come together by association across time and cultures. His message encouraged graduates to thus appreciate the fruit of those associations and the effects we have on each other.
