Local students graduate with honors from SDSU

Four students from Amador Valley High

Five Tri-Valley students were recognized as honors graduates this past weekend at San Diego State University's graduation, with four of the students being Amador Valley High School alumni.

"Graduating 'with honors' is the sign of a student who has made the most of their time at SDSU, enjoying transformational experiences and preparing them for a successful future, whether they are joining the workforce or exploring an advanced degree," wrote SDSU representative Beth Chee.

Nearly 9,600 graduates walked across the stage at commencement, which ran from May 14-17.

The following local students graduated with honors from SDSU:

• Sarah Bronzini, from Amador Valley High School, received a degree in psychology and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

• Marisa Fraticelli, from Amador Valley High School, received a degree in nursing and graduated Summa Cum Laude.

• Rachel Kinnard, from Amador Valley High School, received a degree in psychology and graduated Magna Cum Laude.

• Connor McCune, from Valley Christian High School, received a degree in International Security And Conflict Resolution and graduated Cum Laude.

• Kara Seliga, from Amador Valley High School, received a degree in environmental engineering and graduated Cum Laude.

Based on a 4.0 GPA scale, the distinction of summa cum laude is awarded to undergraduate students with an average of at least 3.8; magna cum laude is awarded to undergraduate students with an average of at least 3.65; and cum laude is awarded to undergraduate students with an average of at least 3.5. Some results are still pending final grades.
