Congratulations Spring 2014 Graduates!

A huge congratulations to all of IPR’s Spring 2014 graduates! This quarter 23 students received their diplomas in IPR’s own Robinson Hall, which proved to be our best graduation ceremony to date.

Emcee Mary Jane Alm (a perennial favorite IPR teacher) kept the ceremony moving with her usual eloquence, and instructor Scott Nelson offered astute observations about the next steps after graduation. He also showed this inspiring clip of a Jim Carey graduation speech in Iowa earlier this year.

Students graduating summa cum laude included valedictorian Roman Pinter (A.A.S. in sound design for visual media) and Mark Straley (A.A.S. in sound design for visual media); students graduating magna com laude included Trevor Murchison (A.A.S. in audio production and engineering); students graduating cum laude included Austin Jones (A.A.S. in audio production and engineering), Jayde Wolf (A.A.S. in audio production and engineering), Jessica Readel (A.A.S. in music and entertainment business) and Brian Garrels (A.A.S. in sound design for visual media).

Additionally, three students won IPR’s coveted ICON award for outstanding achievement; the award is voted on by faculty and given to graduating students who will best represent the school when they become professionals in the field. ICON winners this quarter include Trevor Murchison, Lindsie Heitzman and Mark Straley.
