Roth replaces Mast as morning commencement speaker

Brian Mast as speaker at the morning commencement ceremony Dec. 19 for graduates of the Associate in Science, Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Science degree programs and the certificate programs. The session was moved due to the passing of President George H.W. Bush.

The ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m. at the South Florida Fair Expo Center in West Palm Beach. Roth, a Palm Beach County native, was re-elected in November to a second term to represent District 85. He is the owner of Roth Farms.
