Ceja received her diploma during a ceremony held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, in Hutcherson Center on Wayland’s Plainview campus. Dr. Cindy McClenagan, Vice president for Academic Affairs, presented the candidates for degrees to Dr. Bobby Hall, President, who conferred degrees with assistance from Rick Breeden, chairman of Wayland’s Board of Trustees.

“Graduation is the pinnacle of the collegiate experience and signifies to the world that the graduate has not only mastered a challenging curriculum but has also displayed the grit and determination to complete a degree despite all the challenges of life,” Hall said. “The culmination of this special investment of time and resources will serve them well throughout their lives. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and all who serve at Wayland, I congratulate each of our graduates. We are proud of you.”

Ceja’s mother Erika Ceja told the Express she made the President’s List and graduated with a 4.0 this last semester. According to Erika, Ceja will be home for a bit while she looks for a Physician Assistant Program to continue her education.
