For Readers at Commencement

A script is provided to all readers, generally a week in advance of the ceremony. Readers lists become available in early May with a final draft sent the Friday before Commencement weekend. Please note that name cards will be used at each ceremony and readers will be expected to read from the card and not from the lists provided. 

Readers log into the name pronunciation software database via the MySanDiego portal. Once logged in, readers can listen to recorded files, which have been recorded and uploaded by the students. Please contact the Help Desk at x7900 and ask to speak with Stephen Maier if you have questions. 

Readers should plan to attend one of the rehearsals and microphone checks on Friday, May 15 or May 22, 2020 at 3 p.m. on the ground floor of the JCP. Please convene on stage.

Readers are encouraged to contact the students directly regarding correct pronunciation of names, as not every student uploads a recording and in some cases, a particular name might be difficult to understand as recorded. Readers are also encouraged to arrive early at the JCP to ask students the correct pronunciation of their names as they line up for the procession. Names can be recorded beginning the first day of Grad Fest through 5 p.m. on the Friday a week in advance of Commencement.
