Ringling College of Art and Design
Number of graduates: 403
Speakers: Ringling President Larry R. Johnson; student address, Tyrell Dion Waiters; commencement address, Marc Anthony
Shining moment: Ringling graduate Tyrell Dion Waiters, who graduated from Bayshore High School in 2007, stepped forward to give the 2013 Ringling commencement student address after a glowing introduction from Ringling President Larry Johnson.
Best quote: Commencement speaker Marc Anthony: "I had a speech impediment when I was a child. I had a terrible stutter ... Singing taught me how to focus, how to concentrate... I turned my disability into my strength. That's the power of art. That's what art can do for you."
Interesting sight: Students each came in waving a little flag representing their home countries.
