The return to an in-person graduation ceremony for all University of Hawaii at Hilo students gave this year’s DKICP graduates something extra to celebrate. Seventy-four members of the Class of 2022 received their Pharm.D. degree in the hooding ceremonies held on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at the Edith Kanaka’ole Stadium in Hilo. This year’s class valedictorian was Zhiling (Viky) Huang.
Degrees were also conferred on graduate students John Jacob and KH Ahammad uz Zaman, who received a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences in the hooding ceremony.
“We congratulate our 2022 graduates, who have been faced with many personal and academic challenges in their last few years here,” says Interim Dean Miriam Mobley Smith. “We look forward to hearing about all they are destined to accomplish, and we wish them well in their dedication to making a difference in the lives of their patients, communities and society, as a whole.”
