Congratulations Graduates

Message from the Chancellor

Dear graduates,

On behalf of the entire UA Grantham team, congratulations on your graduation!

Now is the time to celebrate your way! Put on your regalia, gather with family and friends, and toast to the hard work you’ve put in to reach this significant milestone. Take snapshots and send to communications@uagrantham.edu so that we can include them on this page.

At UA Grantham we celebrate graduation every month by highlighting your stories in your own words – there’s no better way to highlight your achievement.

Thank you for letting us be part of your education journey.

Summer 2024 Award Recipients

Outstanding Graduate Award
Maurice Batubenga

Maruice Bin Batubenga is a Human Resources clerk and French Interpreter at Tyson Foods. He immigrated to the United States with his family in 2014 from Johannesburg, Republic of South Africa, and worked his way up from a parking lot cashier to his current position. After earning a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from UA Grantham, he is using his education to seek a senior leadership position within the company. Batubenga encourages his community to pursue education and demonstrates how a degree can change lives.

“I came to the USA in 2014, from the Republic of South Africa, with my wife and children. I work full-time for Tyson Foods, and for five years I was a student at UA Grantham. It was not easy as a bread-winner to work ten hours a day, sometimes six days a week and be a college student at the same time. No matter how difficult it was, I do not remember being behind with my assignments or my weekly discussions. Because I know that wherever there is a will, there is always a way. I knew what I was pursuing, that is why nothing could distract me.”
