The education college hosted two ceremonies: one in Katy on Monday and one in Victoria on Tuesday, to induct graduating educators who have finished their student teaching periods and are ready to enter the teaching profession. Twenty-three graduating students and their families attended the ceremonies, where students received UHV mementos and engraved pins from the education college.
