The Opportunity Scholars program at the David Eccles School of Business celebrated their Fall 2022 graduates during their end-of-semester luau. Graduates spoke about their educational journey, sharing advice with their peers, and gratitude for donors, mentors, and Program Director, Latu Kinikini.

“It was a great experience getting to hear them talk about their journey through college and to celebrate their graduation,” said Junior Richard Nguyen

The event was catered by Moki’s Hawaiian Grill & Catering and included a fantastic show by the University of Utah’s Pacific Islander Student Association.

Each graduate received leis, a graduation stole, and an embossed leather briefcase.
