SOE Convocation Snapshots

The SOE Convocation was held on Tuesday, May 25, 2010 at the Guam Marriott Resort and Spa. Close to 80 candidates were awarded during this special ceremony, and 9 of these graduates hail from other Pacific island entities in Micronesia, including Pohnpei, Yap, and Chuuk.

The Convocation was held in memory of Dr. Sweeter Sachuo who passed away on April 23, 2010 in Kosrae in the service of UOG-SOE and supporting his beloved FSM. Dr. Sachuo was the first person of Chuukese descent to serve on the SOE faculty. Over the years, he supported students from all walks of life, most especially students from the FSM, to whom he was a shining example of hard work and dedication. We extend to his dear wife, Kinnie Sachuo, also an adjunct faculty of SOE, our deepest and heartfelt condolences. Dr. Sachuo will be missed by all his family, friends, students and colleagues at UOG.
