Difficulty: 0

("Pomp and Circumstance")

(light music)

- [Narrator] Things are a little different this year.

A little different and a little distant.

They say it's unprecedented.

We say it's a chance to show our strengths

through innovation, ingenuity, patience, and generosity.

Things Knights are known for.

Your time at UCF ended differently

than we all thought it would.

No pomp, no circumstance, and no hard earned

well deserved walk across the stage.

At least, not yet.

But here's the thing, that walk doesn't make you a Knight.

You've always been a Knight,

ever since you stepped on campus.

Maybe long before then and nothing will ever change that.

You have years of experiences

that no one can take away from you.

Exciting memories, inspiring moments,

challenging triumphs, and dreams come true.

- [Announcer] Unbeaten, 13-0.

- [Narrator] No one will ever have

the same college experience as you,

and that's a wonderful thing.

- [Reporter] Classes beginning for the first time

at UCF Downtown, the 15 acre campus is the new home

to more than 20 degree programs.

- [Narrator] The future is yours to shape, too.

No matter what your focus was in the classroom,

you are now a better version of yourself.

Ready to make an impact right here in our community.

- [Reporter] UCF is handing out free

take home food for families in need.

- [Narrator] Across the country.

- [Reporter] Limbitless Solutions is 3D printing parts

for masks for first responders.

- [Narrator] Around the world.

- We have scientists, we have engineers, we have others who

could be thinking about how do you test?

How do you diagnose?

How do you cure?

- [Narrator] And out beyond the stars.

- [Reporter] Determined to return to the moon by 2024.

UCF is a critical part of that plan.

- [Narrator] Right now, we celebrate you, the class of 2020,

in the best way we can.

And simply ask that you take care of yourself and others.

Stay strong, stay curious and as always, Charge On.

(light bagpipe music)

- Welcome to the 160th commencement exercise

of the University of Central Florida.

I'm Dr. Tosha Dupras, the Interim Dean

of the College of Sciences.

To begin our ceremony, our vocalist, Jose Velez,

and our organist, Andrew Walker,

will lead us in singing our national anthem.

(triumphant music)

Oh, say can you see

By the dawn's early light

What so proudly we hailed

At the twilight's last gleaming

Whose broad stripes and bright stars

Through the perilous fight

O'er the ramparts we watched

Were so gallantly streaming

And the rockets' red glare

The bombs bursting in air

Gave proof through the night

That our flag was still there

O say, does that star-spangled

Banner yet wave

O'er the land of the free

And the home of the brave

- Mr. President, the Spring 2020 graduating class

of the University of Central Florida's

College of Sciences are virtually assembled.

- Thank you, and thank you all for being

with us online today.

Obviously, this virtual commencement is not our preferred

way to honor your achievements,

but given the new realities the pandemic

has forced upon our community, nation and the world,

we do hope we are able to provide some recognition worthy

of your successes until such time as we can do so in person.

This is a big milestone in the lives of our graduates,

and I am very pleased that so many friends,

family members and guests have joined us virtually

to help celebrate their accomplishments.

It took a lot of hard work for them to get to where they are

and I am honored to reward them with the degrees

and certificates they are here to receive.

They have definitely earned them.

I know you are proud of your graduates.

And, I also know that a good part of their success

is because of your love and support.

Family and friends, thank you for all you have done

to help get them this far,

and for all you will continue to do.

Today is a celebration of your success, too!

Before we continue, I would like to acknowledge

some special members of the UCF family who may not be

with us online today.

UCF's brave men and women who have been

called away to active military duty.

I would also like to acknowledge

two additional groups of graduates:

graduating members of our ROTC programs who have just been

or are about to be commissioned as officers

in our armed forces, and our graduating student veterans.

All of these graduates deserve

our special thanks and congratulations.

To UCF's faculty:

you are the foundation of our great institution and mentors

to the next generation of pioneers and innovators.

Thank you for your contributions and impact.

The dedication you, and all educators, have displayed during

this pandemic is nothing short of amazing.

Our commencement speakers today probably need

no introduction to Knight Nation.

Identical twins Shaquem and Shaquill Griffin

both received their Bachelor of Arts

in Human Communication from UCF in 2016.

Growing up, both excelled in football and track,

and, of course, went on to play together here at UCF.

Shaquem was a two-year starter at outside linebacker.

As a senior in 2017, he helped the team to a 13-0 record,

a Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl victory over Auburn

and a National Championship.

He was selected as the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Defensive MVP,

named American Athletic Conference Defensive

Player of the Year and a two-time

First Team All-Conference honoree.

Shaquill was a two-year starter

at cornerback for the Knights,

earning All-Conference honors in 2016.

His 15 passes broken up as a senior were the second most

by a Knight in a single-season and he ranked fifth

in the nation in passes defended.

In 2017 NFL Draft, he was selected 90th overall

by the Seattle Seahawks, and was named to his

first Pro Bowl in 2019.

Shaquem joined Shaquill with the Seahawks in 2018 when

he was picked by Seattle in the fifth round of the draft.

Active in their community and an inspiration to people

everywhere, they embody the spirit of Knight Nation.

Please welcome, by video, Shaquem and Shaquill Griffin.

- What's up, Knight Nation, class of 2016 here, Shaquem.

- And Shaquill Griffin and first and foremost

I wanna say congratulations to everybody

that's graduating in this year's class.

Also, I wanna say thank you to UCF for giving me

and my brother this opportunity to speak at this years

commencement speech, definitely an honor.

And today, I thought about writing a speech down,

you know you usually do, but I wanna be authentic,

I wanna be real.

You know, so, I'm here, no pen, no paper, just me.

First thing I wanna talk about is just real life

and real life after graduation.

And first thing first you gotta know your worth.

Know your worth, know the sacrifices

you made to get here today to graduate.

And you all earned it, you all deserve it.

So, going off that I wanna say, well,

I wanna tell you guys a little story.

I'm gonna revolve it around athletics

because it's the easiest way for me to express how I feel.

So, you guys just bear with me for a little bit.

I remember leaving high school,

attending my first year at

the University of Central Florida.

And I was on my high horse, you know I was on cloud nine,

just felt like I was that guy.

You know, coming from high school,

well know guy in high school,

you was that dude, and I got comfortable with that.

And that's who I thought I was,

and I attended UCF, you know, you start to go through

different scenarios and hardships

through college and all you guys can relate.

You know, there's always been some hard times in college.

So, going through my freshman year, my sophomore year,

head into my junior year I hit a little wall,

and this wall caused me to forget who I was,

forget the worth that I thought I had,

and it put me in a position where

I felt like I couldn't finish.

I thought I wasn't gonna make it and I had second

thoughts about who I would become or who I am becoming.

And it's kinda cool to tell this story because my brother

being the guy that he is and he motivates so many people,

he doesn't even know that he's one of my biggest motivation.

Going into my senior year, his junior year,

you know, him finally get the opportunity

to play for the first time.

You know, if most people do know our story,

you kinda know everything that he went through, you know,

since he was a child, attending UCF, and just to see him

get the opportunity and take full advantage of it because

he always knew his worth, he never forgot his worth.

Everything that he's been through, he overcame it

because he always knew who he was, should I say, I'm sorry.

That kinda brought the light back to who I was and who I am.

I figured out who I wanted to be and I found my worth.

I knew I was gonna be something great

and I had to believe in that.

Only thing I could ever ask for was the opportunity,

just like he asked for.

And I knew once I got the opportunity

I was gonna take full advantage of it.

So, the main thing is never forget your worth.

To this day I will never forget again,

and you guys should never forget your worth

because look where you're at today.

You made it this far to graduate

and you deserve that and now,

it's time for you to just find your purpose.

What's the reason why you do all of it?

What's the reason why you sacrificed so much time?

So much time away from family to able to get

this next exam done, make sure you had the best grades

so you can achieve whatever you wanted to achieve.

So, find your purpose, find what's make you happy,

find what you love, and take full advantage of it.

And remember, being a UCF Knight,

all we ever needed was an opportunity.

And being a fellow alumni it's all we ever needed,

and then you take full advantage of it.

I feel like there's no one better than UCF,

and I feel like we are the future.

So, let's continue to be great,

and let's continue to try for a better tomorrow.

Let's do it, you know you deserve it all.

Now, I'll let my brother take it on from here.

- Yeah, that's a tough one to come behind.

I wanna say thank you to UCF and fellow alum

and future alum for allowing me and my brother

to do this commencement speech.

Yeah, there's a lot I could say,

I mean, coming to UCF, man,

being a young pup and not knowing what's going on,

but one thing I can say about UCF is it allowed me

to figure out who I was, it allowed me to experience certain

things like adversity, and not only adversity,

but certain prejudices that poses,

you know, meeting new friends, new family,

being a part of a great nation like Knight Nation.

UCF did so much more than just being on a school campus

and seeing the beautiful scenery and being in Orlando.

UCF brought brotherhood to me and brought family to me.

It brought so much more than I would never have thought

to accomplish or gain at a school.

I know it's a little crazy right now,

I thought about writing a speech, but I did not.

I thought about getting help from my agents

or somebody else to help me write it,

but it wouldn't be true to me

and to you unless you heard my words and how I feel,

and I feel that y'all should hear it from the heart.

And all jokes aside, I'm in like a half-suit right now,

and I appreciate you guys at home comfortable.

And it's like wonder why we doing a commencement speech

over the phone, but during this very, very serious topic

and with the coronavirus and everything,

make sure we all practice social distancing.

Well, yeah, we wanted to make sure that you hear from us,

and the one thing I really wanna talk about is adversity.

And I think adversity made me who I am today.

Just to put more into it,

don't let adversity dictate who you wanna be.

I mean, this is a time in your life when you're going

into the real world, like what our parents would say.

But take advantage of every opportunity you get.

Don't allow obstacles and different barriers that's gonna

be in your way to dictate who you're gonna be and what kinda

person that you wanna send out to show everybody.

Just to give you an example, you know,

I just come outta college, I didn't know how it was gonna

go, I didn't know how the Draft was gonna be,

I didn't know where I was gonna be at.

You know, by the grace of God I had

a opportunity to be back with my brother.

You know, the best feeling that you can ever get.

And even through that time I felt like everything

was going my way, I felt like everything

was figured out until it wasn't.

I experienced a lot of adversity

my first year in the league.

But that was just something I needed to go through.

That was something that taught me, that was something

that built me to be a better person, but I wouldn't know

how to do that unless I was an alumni of UCF.

What separates us from everybody else at other schools

and other nations is that we strong, we know adversity,

we've felt it before, and we know what to do when it comes.

You beat it, you fight it, and you attack it

every single day it comes at you,

and you become a better person, a better you.

Now, through the adversity,

you always gotta learn how to strong.

Y'all gotta know when things get hard,

you fight even harder.

And that's one thing I want you all to take with you.

Don't let adversity or don't let

obstacles stop you from being great.

Don't let obstacles stop you from helping

the next person out to you.

Look to your left and look to your right and know

that you got people behind you supporting you

and always know that you're never alone.

I got you, Knight Nation got you, we all got each other,

so always remember that.

And one thing I want all of you to take with you when

you're leaving this beautiful campus and you can't come back

unless you're coming for more schooling, help somebody out,

be great, change the world, that's what we're here for.

That's what we came to UCF for because we wanted to help,

we wanted to change the world,

we wanted to make the world a better place.

If I know that I can help one person, that one person

can help 10 and that 10 can help 1,000 later.

So, with your help, with your greatness,

the Knight Nation greatness,

let's make the world a better place.

And I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing all of you out there.

Knight Nation, fellow alum, congratulations,

I'll be seeing you soon.

- And one more thing.

Knight Nation being the best nation,

we refuse to be put in a box or be categorized

and think that what we can't be and what we will be.

Let's continue to be great 'cause

we are great and we are this future.

So, like my brother said, let's change the world.

Go Knights.

- Thank you, Shaquem and Shaquill.

Your example motivates us to charge on!

And now, the exciting time in our program

when degrees are conferred and we read our graduate's names.

Given the number and diversity of names at UCF,

we apologize if there are any mispronunciations.

Will Dr. Michael Johnson, Interim Provost

and Vice President for Academic Affairs,

please commence with the conferral of degrees?

- The doctoral degree represents the highest

academic achievement a person can earn.

To receive the doctorate, candidates must demonstrate

proficiency through advanced graduate course work

and examinations and demonstrate to their university

professors and peers that they can engage

in substantive research that adds

to the body of knowledge in their fields of study.

Dr. Elizabeth Klonoff, Vice President for Research

and Dean of the College of Graduate Studies,

will present the candidates for the doctoral degree.

- Mr. President, on behalf of the dean and the faculty,

I am pleased to present these candidates for the degrees for

which they qualify and recommend that they be conferred.

- Thank you, Dr. Klonoff.

Candidates, by virtue of the authority vested in me

by the State of Florida and with the concurrence

of the UCF Board of Trustees, I confer upon you the degree

for which you have been recommended

and for which you have qualified,

with all the rights and responsibilities

thereto appertaining.


- The hooding ceremony is traditional

for the conferral of a doctoral degree.

The hood is a UCF hood,

as its black and gold colors denote,

and the velvet represents the field of study.

Regrettably, we cannot perform this ceremony at this time,

but we will read the names of those

who have qualified for this distinction.

- Hello friends, colleagues, and most importantly,

graduates of the Spring 2020 class

of the University of Central Florida.

While I understand that this is not

the ceremony you expected, or frankly,

the ceremony you wanted, here we are,

and I am right here with you.

Here we sit in front of you still able to recognize

your contributions to our beloved UCF,

and even in the midst of the chaos

that has overtaken our country and planet, this is your day.

Your day to reflect on all of the things

you have accomplished, but most importantly a day

to eye further, and to ponder on the things

you will and want to accomplish.

Each of us has a unique story, and at UCF,

we celebrate this diversity, we acknowledge the fact that

we have all come from different backgrounds to be here

and have all overcome unique barriers

and constraints throughout our college careers,

and this COVID-19 pandemic is one of them,

but I assure you that it will not be the last.

Nonetheless, everyone sits in this room under

the same title: Graduates of the Spring 2020

class of The University of Central Florida.

I have always said that the best part about attending UCF,

is the fact that we are a part of a story,

a book if you will, that is not yet finished.

Today, you are authors in your own right,

and while your pen has metaphorically run out of ink

on this chapter, your book,

and UCF's book is far from finished.

As a graduate, a new chapter is now to be written

as your new role as an alumni, and with this new role

you have now earned a very special platform.

You should use this platform to pursue your passion

and to bring positive change to the world around us.

This commencement marks the beginning

of a great journey that starts today,

and you should be looking forward to many more.

At this historical moment, you have the opportunity

to scale new heights, to do more, to be better,

and to charge on with a conviction to serve

and make our world a better place.

Paired with your passion, serve this world

in your own unique way, and never forget your alma mater,

the University of Central Florida.

It has been said that the best is yet to come

for our beloved UCF, and while that is definitely the case,

the best is yet to come for all of us as well.

Charge on proudly as a UCF Knight now and forever more.


- We are living in extraordinary times,

and the class of 2020 finds itself

in an unprecedented historical moment.

The fact that we are unable to safely join together

in person today as planned to celebrate your milestone

is a reflection of this new reality.

We do hope we will be able to do that soon,

but until then I'd like you to reflect on what

I'm beginning to understand as the defining spirit

of this young institution.

The motto at UCF is Reach for the Stars.

People talk about having a 1-0 approach to tomorrow.

And when someone says "Go Knights,"

I always hear the reply, "Charge on!"

I know these are more than catchy phrases;

they sum up a philosophy at UCF.

When you say, "reach for the stars,"

it's a call to push oneself to dream big.

To refuse to be limited by what others say is possible.

When people say "1-0" they mean that

when you achieve a goal, set a new one, a harder one.

Cherish the victory, but don't rest on it.

Reset, because the next challenge awaits.

And when, like now, there are obstacles,

when there are inevitable setbacks, charge on.

Some call that perseverance, or grit.

But from what I've seen of this great university,

it's just part of what it means to be a Knight.

UCF is a place where defying odds is not the exception,

it is the expectation.

So take this place with you as you go out

to change the world.

You are needed now more than ever.

We will close our ceremony by singing the alma mater.

Thank you for joining us for today's commencement ceremony.

Go Knights, Charge On!

(student sighs)

All hail to Alma Mater

Whose banner's black and gold

Will wave in fame and splendor

As the passing years unfold

May loyalty and friendship

Within our hearts unite

And light the star to guide us

Ever upward in our flight

With honor and affection

Our friendships will renew

We sing of thee our Alma Mater

Ever true

(light bagpipe music)

- Fellow Knights, Nicole Stott here,

wishing you happy graduation.

Not the commencement you planned on, I know,

but life is always an adventure.

I hope that you go forth and do great things,

and always remember that we live on a planet,

we are all earthlings and the only border

that matters is that thin blue line of atmosphere

that blankets and protects us all.

So, live like crew, not passengers here on spaceship Earth,

and I wish you all the best.

- Hi, I'm Orange County Mayor, Jerry Demings.

Congratulations on your recent graduation

from the University of Central Florida.

We're very proud of you.

We look forward to working with each of you.

I know that things are different this year,

but I'll offer you this bit of advice.

Pray first, aim high, and stay focused.

- Hi, I'm Orlando Mayor, Buddy Dyer,

and I wanna congratulate the UCF class

of 2020 on your graduation.

We know that you'll do great things as you embark on your

next step in your life

and you'll make your alma mater proud.

I want you to know your mayor is proud of you

and your community is proud of you.

I'm honored to be able to wish you my sincere

congratulations during this special time in your life.

Best wishes, Knights.

Charge on.

- Hola, Knights.

Cyndia Morales Muniz, Director of HSI Culture

and Partnerships at UCF and class of 2013,

doctorate in Educational Leadership.

My advice, continue to seek out

opportunities for professional growth.

Learning never stops.

Congratulations, (speaking foreign language), Knights.

- What's up guys?

It's Tacko Fall.

First, I hope that all of you are healthy,

that your families are healthy and doing good, as well.

I just wanted to congratulate y'all on graduation.

That's a huge milestone, that's a huge accomplishment.

Something that you all should be really proud of.

Go out there and make the world a better place,

and now welcome to the UCF alumni club.

- Congratulations to the class of 2020.

You guys have been a part of more wins and more

championships than any class in the history of UCF.

- Hey, Knight Nation, this is Coach Bear with UCF Softball.

- Congratulations to our 2020 graduates.

- You guys have worked hard and it's a huge accomplishment

to be earning your degree and we are so proud of you,

that you're representing Knight Nation and going out.

- We are so, so proud of you

for everything that you've done.

- And remember once a Knight, always a Knight.

- Go forth and do as well in life

as you did representing the black and gold.

- Congratulations class of 2020.

- And I wish you very best of luck.

Go Knights. - Go Knights.

- Go Knights. - Go Knights.

- Go Knights. - And charge on.

- Congratulations graduating class

of the University of Central Florida in Spring 2020.

- Congratulations class of 2020.

You should be so proud.

- We will truly miss you and congratulations

to all of the class of 2020.

- Remember, wherever you go from here,

you'll always be a Knight.

(dog panting)

(upbeat music) (students chanting)

- [Students] UCF Knights!

- Spring 2020 graduates, congratulations.

Despite this being an extraordinary time

for our university and our world,

you have proven that Knights can always be counted

on to rise to every occasion, no matter the obstacles.

I am sorry that your semester did not end

as any of us planned, but I hope you know that your

perseverance is inspiring and the grit and can-do attitude

you've shown these past few weeks and the past few years,

will help you succeed in whatever you have planned next.

Your excellence is defined by your ability to rally

around these challenges and to accel in trying times.

Just as we celebrate you today,

we also recognize your family and friends,

and all of your faculty and staff mentors

who have helped you along the way.

We are all so proud of what you have accomplished,

and we look forward to celebrating this milestone

with you in person when the time is right.

Until then, to UCF's newest alumni:

Go Knights and Charge On.
