Paige Ahladianakis Named an Undergraduate Valedictory Speaker

Paige Ahladianakis (Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering ‘22) will represent the undergraduates of the Spring Class of 2022 at the Saturday, May 7, morning graduation ceremony as the valedictory speaker. Ahladianakis, of Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, completes her degree at Hawai‘i Pacific University after having transferred from the Florida Institute of Technology. Her love of animals guided her to the medical field. Her hope is to work with technologies that assist the creatures who cannot fully tell us themselves how we can help them. She has worked in veterinary settings and as a zookeeper intern at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida. While an HPU student, she has served as a technician in a private laboratory, conducted research in the cellular laboratory with Professor Chris Capaldo, and volunteered at Wild Bird Rehab Haven. Ahladianakis is described by her faculty as an exemplary student who regularly assists her fellow Engineering students.
