The 2015 Graduation ceremony was held on July 11, 2015, at the Aliso Viejo Conference Center in Aliso Viejo, CA. Graduates came from all over the country to celebrate their accomplishments with friends and family on a beautiful Southern California day.

Highlights included motivating speeches by AAU President, Dr. Bill Luton, and Class Valedictorian, Cheryl Thompson, a military spouse and mom who graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice.

Very special thanks go out to the Boy Scouts of America Troop 774, Chaplain Major Ethan Hedberg of the CA Air National Guard, and members of our esteemed Governing Board and staff in attendance for helping to make the day a huge success!
