GREENVILLE, N.C. – Jasmine Williams of Murrieta graduated with a bachelor’s degree in birth-kindergarten teachers education from East Carolina University during spring commencement exercises, May 4, in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. Williams was one of 5,479 graduates who received degrees.

The keynote speaker for commencement was Linda McMahon, administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration. McMahon earned her bachelor’s degree in French and her teaching certification at the university, before going on to become the co-founder and CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.

She encouraged graduates to “find your passion, play to your strengths and never lose your curiosity. I think these apply to business or any path you take. While you can’t script your life, your values will drive your narrative.”

In recognition of her leadership, accomplishments and service, Chancellor Cecil Staton awarded McMahon an honorary doctorate of humanities degree, as approved by the university’s board of trustees. For more information, visit
