AISFM students graduate with flying colors

On 17 September 2017, our students graduated amidst glam and glitz in Shilpakala Vedika. The stage was set for the legendary director, S.S. Rajamouli, to confer our bright students with their hard-earned degrees.

The event started with a tribute to S.S. Rajamouli Garu through a dance performance choreographed by Vijay. This was followed by a motivating welcome address by our director, Mrs. Amala Akkineni Garu, which lit up the entire hall.

Shortly afterward, the dean, Mr. Bala Raja declared the graduation ceremony open and Chairman, Mr. Akkineni Naragajuna Garu delivered a heartfelt speech about our founding father, Akkineni Nageswar Rao Garu’s vision. The audience sat rapt with attention as they heard how AISFM came to be and how ANR Garu gave life to his dream of helping media & entertainment enthusiasts with a world-class education.

S.S. Rajamouli Garu took the stage next and remembered the contributions and willpower of ANR Garu. We all know that ANR Garu braved a couple of heart strokes through his lifetime but it is worthy to note that nothing – not even dire ailments – stopped him from achieving the goals he set for himself. AISFM is a testimony to this. After this, the graduates were awarded their degree certificates.

Besides the moving speech by S.S. Rajamouli Garu, the convocation ceremony this year was special for another reason as well. ANR gold medals were awarded to exceptional students who scored more than 85% in their boards. The first gold medalist winners were Shashank Velpucharla and Ashwin Sanjay Bharde.

The ceremony concluded with vote of thanks by the dean, the National Anthem, and group photographs with the dignitaries. It was nothing short of delightful to see our students graduate with flying colors.
