KUSA — Can you imagine the pressure of reading names at graduation?
You can’t get one wrong with everyone’s family there.
Now let’s talk about the pressure of a big school, with names in a ton of different languages.
In this case, we’re talking about CU Denver.
But this task isn’t a big deal for Dr. Devin Jenkins. He’s a linguist, and he reads the names of those proud grads cold every year.
He’s read an estimated 15,000 names at CU Denver graduations since 2011.
And Dr. Jenkins pulls it off. See how in the video above.
