Distinguished Graduate to speak at Commencement

Matthew Brunicardi: Distinguished Graduate to speak at graduation


Matthew Brunicardi,  the Distinguished Graduate for International Studies, was one of several Distinguish Grads who volunteered to be the commencement speaker. The theme of Matthew’s speech is “Don’t just talk about it – be about it.” He will be one of the speakers  Saturday, May 11, at Freeman Coliseum when San Antonio College holds its 85th graduation ceremony.
 

A native of Brenham, TX, Matthew is a graduate of Port Aransas High School.  He previously attended community colleges in Austin and Victoria. He started at SAC in 2009 and has been both a part- and full-time student while working fulltime as a waiter/bartender at a San Antonio restaurant. 
 

Matthew is vice president of the Phi Theta Kappa Beta Nu Chapter at SAC and a former member of the Student Government Association.  He has a 3.76 GPA and hopes to attend law school.  In the big picture Matthew says he would like to be a Foreign Service officer, create global policy or become a politician.

“I would like to be part of something bigger,” he says.

Matthew, 23, is the son of Carlos and Cathy Brunicardi and the youngest of six children.  He says his family has been a pillar of encouragement for him.

Projects that Matthew has been a part of while at SAC included volunteering at the PTK Food Pantry, the Student Fashion Show and helping with campus tours.  He also served as an intern for Texas State Rep. Mike Villarreal.   

“I like that SAC is a tolerant place, and that there is diversity,” he says. “Everyone is accepting.”    

In thefall,Matthew  will be attending King’s College (NY) where he has also received the Presidential scholarship and the King’s Grant.

 “The hours I’ve invested here on campus have not only cultivated my ability to uphold the four hallmarks of Phi Theta Kappa: Leadership, Scholarship, Service, and Fellowship; but also have given me the tools to move forward as an intellectual individual among the academic community in higher education.”
