Community college plans commencement

May 23, 2004

Carroll Community College will graduate 337 students during commencement ceremonies at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Physical Education Learning Center at McDaniel College.

Of those 337 students, 278 will receive an associate's degree, 49 will receive a certificate, and 10 will receive two or more awards. More than 100 students are expected to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas.

Robert L. Bogomolny, president of the University of Baltimore, will give the commencement address to the Class of 2004. A graduate of Harvard University and Harvard Law School, Bogomolny began his career as a lawyer, then became a professor of law at the Southern Methodist University School of Law and later at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University.

Before becoming president of UB in 2002, Bogomolny was corporate senior vice president and general counsel/chief legal strategist for G.D. Searle & Co. He also is the author of two books and numerous articles on legal and social issues.

Carroll Community College President Faye Pappalardo will welcome the students, parents, faculty and staff to the commencement. Board of Trustees Chairwoman Barbara Charnock will bring greetings from the college's governing body.

Students who will be recognized for academic achievement include Jeannine M.L. Morber, who will receive the 2004 President's Academic Excellence Award, and Jennifer Lee Eikenberg and Suzanne Lynn Kristensen, participants on the All Maryland Academic Team.

Recognition also will be given to nine December 2003 and May 2004 graduates who maintained a 4.0 grade-point average throughout their college career.

Fifty-seven percent of the students receiving an associate of arts degree will graduate from the arts and sciences program or the general studies program.

Of those in the associate of applied science program, the three most popular majors were computer information systems, computer graphics and the physical therapist assistant program.

Nine students will receive an associate of arts in teaching degree.

The most popular certificate programs were Licensed Practical Nursing and Law Enforcement.

Graduate Jennifer Lee Eikenberg will give the "Student Response" to end the ceremony.
