MELAKA, MALAYSIA - Trine University awarded 49 Bachelor of Science degrees in Business Administration to students at the Melaka Education Center located at Putra International College in Melaka, Malaysia.

The newly appointed Menteri Besar (Chief Minster) from the State of Perak, Malaysia, Ahmad Faizal Bin Dato Azumu, uncle to one of graduating students, attended Saturday's convocation with his wife. The Menteri Besar also addressed those attending the convocation, which is customary in Malaysia when a high-ranking political official attends a formal function. Following his address, Ahmad Faizal Bin Dato Azumu was presented a pewter letter holder embossed with the Trine and Putra International College emblems.

This year's Distinguished Student Award was presented to Vanessa Rosse A/P Gerard Jeevan. She never had less than an A in all her schooling, achieving a 4.0 grade point average at Putra and Trine. During her address, she mentioned this award had fulfilled her dreams and she would never forget the friendships she made while at Putra. Her selection was very popular with her fellow students and she was greeted by a standing ovation.

Trine instructor Michael Martin was honored to act in the role of master of ceremonies at the commencement, and told the audience, as one of Vanessa Rosse A/P Gerard Jeevan's instructors, that he very much appreciated her leadership in class and the opinions she often provided.
