LA MIRADA, CALIF. – Exeter-grown Hannah Mahony is saying goodbye to Biola University as she is graduating with her degree in Liberal Studies Elementary Education, moving her tassel to the left in pursuit of her next steps.

Exeter resident Hannah Mahony is set to graduate from Biola University in La Mirada, marking the end of her journey as an Eagle at the university’s spring commencement ceremony. At the graduation ceremonies on May 3-4, Mahony will walk alongside 1,118 students to commemorate their achievements, with a total of 800 undergraduates and 318 graduates transitioning into their next chapter.

Mahony pursued her undergraduate degree in Liberal Studies Elementary Education. Her graduation is particularly significant as she represents a generation of students who may have missed out on traditional high school ceremonies due to pandemic-related cancellations.

To ensure a memorable experience at this graduation, Biola has arranged for social media influencer and alum Zach King (’12) to deliver the keynote address. King, known for his captivating videos and innovative storytelling, will provide an interactive experience for the graduates during the ceremonies.

Before the commencement event, students had the opportunity to participate in Biola’s Grad Fair, where various booths offered resources and support to prepare them for life after graduation. Notably, there was a station where students could create tassels with their high school colors, paying homage to the ceremonies they might have missed.

Founded in 1908, Biola University is dedicated to providing biblically centered education, scholarship, and service, with a mission to equip individuals to impact the world for Jesus Christ. With over 5,000 students at its Southern California campus and worldwide, Biola’s eight schools offer a range of academic programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels.

Recognized as one of the most comprehensive Christian universities and ranked highest in North America for operationalizing its mission, Biola stands as one of the “Best National Universities,” according to U.S. News and World Report. Through its educational and co-curricular offerings, Biola University continues to pursue their mission while educating students.
