Undergrad Commencement Speaker- Than Drage

Than Drage is the selected speaker for the senior class of the traditional four-year undergraduate program. 

Than was born and raised in Columbia, Missouri. He couldn’t wait to call himself a tiger, and even crashed some of his friends' classes at Mizzou when he was a senior at Rock Bridge High. His passion is helping people and plans to be a missionary with a nursing degree after graduation.

Graduate Commencement Speaker - Justina Yevu-Johnson

Justina Yevu-Johnson is the selected graduate speaker. Justina is a Fulbright Scholar; her research focuses on gaining the patient's perspective to build understanding about how health care professionals communicate with advanced cancer patients in Ghana, and to better understand the end-of-life care challenges faced by patients living in low- and middle-income African nations.  Justina has been a graduate student representative to the MU Graduate Professional Council, was selected as a Griffiths Women’s Leadership Society member, and went through the Deaton’s Scholar program.
