Prior to the ceremony, ushers will be available to provide seating assistance. Guests who would like to be seated near the sign language interpreters are asked to express that desire, so an usher may direct them to that area.

Melissa is graduating from Simpson with a degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Physics. Kristine Darland is graduating from the Simpson College Continuing, Graduate and Online program with a Bachelor of Arts in Management Information Systems.
