Every trimester’s end brings on a time of transition as students receive their grades and, in some cases, their diplomas. This past spring’s conclusion in the April 19 commencement marked more than just the passage from one term into the next.

With that, Lamar officially had retired and his 38-year tenure at the University of Science and Arts came to an end.
