Celebrating Bobcat Leadership: The Best is Yet to Come

Thursday, April 15, 2021
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Online - Zoom

We are sorry to let you know that this event has been cancelled. There are a lot of events happening as we wind up for an in person commencement. We will celebrate our graduating seniors across our social media channels and know that they have the tools to lead!

The past 12 months have challenged students in ways that they have never anticipated, yet they have persevered, learned, and grown—and continued to develop the skills necessary to lead. We want to celebrate those accomplishments, honor the COMS class of 2021 graduates, and offer opportunities for all students’ continued growth in a special Bobcat-to-Bobcat connected pair of sessions on April 15. First, please join us to hear COMS alumnus Dwight Ferguson, President and CEO of the California Agricultural Leadership Association, inspire all students to draw upon their experiences to lead the next generation. Following his presentation, we will acknowledge our graduating seniors. Then, from 6:30 to 7:30, all students will have the opportunity to soak up the wisdom of COMS alumni through a series of short breakout sessions designed to help them connect with, and learn from, Bobcats who have succeeded on their own terms.
