Campus Services supports the naturalization of 124 new US citizens!

by Green & Gold News  |   

On Friday, June 24, 2022, the UAA Wendy Williamson Auditorium sponsored and hosted the first large Naturalization Ceremony for Alaska since the onset of the pandemic. There were 124 citizens who were naturalized from 47 different countries. UAA music student Liberty Snitzler sang the National Anthem, and it was a perfect start to the ceremony. U.S. District Court Judge Joshua Kindred, UAA graduate, presided over the ceremony. The Williamson Auditorium will host an even larger Naturalization Ceremony on Aug. 12, 2022. The US District Court in Alaska only has small court rooms, so hosting the event at the Williamson allows for larger ceremonies and for the new citizens to bring friends and family to celebrate with them. The June 24 event was the 7th Naturalization Ceremony, since August of 2017, hosted at the Williamson Auditorium.
