Lamar University officials have released the list of graduate students participating in two commencement ceremonies May 19 at the Montagne Center.  The list includes a record 27 doctoral students for Lamar from four programs of study; 12 graduates from educational leadership, four graduates from chemical engineering, one graduate from engineering, one graduate from deaf studies and deaf education, and nine graduates from audiology, which is also a record for that program.
