I am afraid there´s no equivalent in English, but a (chosen) "representative" would do to explain the tradition. But you would have to explain it anyway.
In some graduation ceremonies the parents or close relatives are such representatives and sometimes we may think of them as "sponsor" as well. So, a "sponsor representative" somehow would be a close expression, or "godmother" (in case of being a female person and by analogy, if we think of ship godmother´s tradition, for instance.) Or godfather, if it´s somebody of the male sex.
Anyway, I don´t know if they have "padrinhos" when it comes to graduation ceremony in English-speaking countries.
