  • Spring 2017 Commencement Doctoral Hooding Ceremony

Transcription

(orchestral music) - [Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome your spring 2017 PhD graduates. (applause) (orchestral music) (orchestral music) (orchestral music) (orchestral music) (orchestral music) Students, please rise for the provost party procession. (orchestral music) - Good morning. Everybody stay standing, or if you are not standing, please rise for the national anthem. ♫ O say can you see ♫ By the dawn's early light ♫ What so proudly we hailed ♫ At the twilight's last gleaming ♫ Whose broad stripes and bright stars ♫ Through the perilous fight ♫ O'er the ramparts we watched ♫ Were so gallantly streaming? ♫ And the rockets' red glare ♫ The bombs bursting in air ♫ Gave proof through the night ♫ That our flag was still there ♫ O say does that star-spangled ♫ Banner yet wave ♫ O'er the land of the free ♫ And the home of the brave? Sit down, please. Well, welcome, everybody, to the seven's hooding ceremony for doctoral students at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am Rafael Bras, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs. Before I introduce the party on the stage, let me remind everybody that this is supposed to be a friendly, family-oriented, cheery, happy ceremony. (cheers) Yes! Little protocol. So we welcome children crying, families screaming, applause, a few tears here and there, that's also good. (applause) At this time, I would like to introduce the other members of the stage party, and we'll ask, see how good you follow instructions, to hold your applause as they stand and their name is called. You can applaud at the end. Dr. Susan Cozzens, vice provost for Graduate Education and Faculty Development and today's mace bearer. Dr. Leslie Sharp, you did very well, associate vice provost of Graduate Education. Dr. Archie Ervin, vice president for Institute Diversity. Dr. Charles Isbell Jr., senior associate dean of the College of Computing. Dr. Carol Colatrella, associate dean of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. Ms. Michelle Rinehart, associate dean of the College of Design. Dr. Peter Thompson, senior associate dean of the Ernest Scheller Jr. College of Business. Dr. Paul Goldbart, dean of the College of Sciences. Dr. Gary May, dean of the College of Engineering. And Ms. Rita Pikowsky, registrar. (applause) Sit down, please. You down, too. As we celebrate the successful conclusion of one chapter of your lifelong education, we acknowledge the many hours of lost sleep, countless cups of coffee, or tea, thousands of pages of research, and draft after draft after draft, until this day was in your sights. But you won't remember those things for long. Instead, you will recall those who were with you on that journey. To the many family members, friends, and colleagues, whose love and support have been so critical along the way, today is also a celebration for all of you, and you deserve a standing ovation. Let's all graduates stand and give a round of applause to the family and friends who have helped you to this point. (applause) Thank you. In addition, joining us are faculty members who have guided and mentored the students, all of you, sharing with you their time, their wisdom, and their expertise in order to help each and every one of you reach your fullest potential and achieve this important milestone. Would the members of the faculty please stand and be recognized. (applause) Thank you very much, thank you for being here. The relationship between advisor and doctoral student is really truly very special, requiring big investments in energy and creativity on both sides. We are pleased to be able to celebrate the joint achievements of the students and their faculty advisors as the focus of this morning's ceremony. Next, I'd like to welcome Dr. Susan Cozzens to the podium. I would recognize in this special occasion that, as she reminded me this morning, she is coming back because she still has students, (laughs) but this is Susan's last hooding ceremony as vice provost. She will actually be professor emeritus and still be supervising, but as vice provost, this is her last ceremony. So, with that, after 18 years, by the way, and a great job as vice provost, as all graduate students would know. So, Susan, please come to the podium. (applause) - Good morning, doctoral graduates. For more than 60 years, Georgia Tech has been engaged in graduate education. And from figuring out why frog tongues are sticky to analyzing tweets on Twitter to measure perceived trustworthiness, both accomplishments that our graduate students have achieved since the last hooding ceremony, our doctoral students are leading research that will benefit people for years to come. The hooding ceremony is a time-honored tradition that gives recognition to students who have completed their doctoral training, which is an exceptional achievement that merits special acknowledgement. We really can't exaggerate how proud we are of you this morning. When you were admitted to the doctoral program at Georgia Tech, you were only one in four applicants that got in. And if you've finished this degree within three, four, or five years of starting, you're actually in the quickest half of those who started with you. But just finishing this degree, it's a lot like an iron man in many ways, just finishing it is a tremendous tribute to you and the support systems around you. I suspect that you have never worked as hard in your life as you did for this degree, that you never reached the same depths of frustration at each setback, nor the same heights of joy with each accomplishment along the way. I suspect that your self-discipline and persistence were never left untested, and as you move through courses, qualifying exams, and, especially, your dissertation, you needed stick-to-itiveness. I suspect that you never needed the support of your family and friends more than you did on this journey, and I urge you to spend some time this week thanking all of them, whether they're here or whether they're far away, because they certainly share in your accomplishment. And, of course, don't forget to thank your advisor, your teacher, your guide, your editor, your frustration, and your friend all at the same time. You wouldn't be here without him or her. You've worked very hard and you're receiving your reward, a PhD from one of the best institutions in the nation and the world, and we are really proud that you will be forever linked to this great university. We welcome you as colleagues. As I look out at all of you today, I see dozens of fields represented, from robotics and biology to public policy and bioengineering. And I just want to remind you that, with great accomplishment comes great responsibility. You're poised for a life of important contributions in an ever-changing world, not because you've learned everything that will be required of you after you leave, but because Georgia Tech graduates work diligently at the frontiers of knowledge. You are prepared not only to face the future, but to design it. So please think hard about that future that you're designing because your children and your grandchildren are going to live in it. You have a wonderful future ahead of you, and we're all looking to you for great things. (applause) We come now to the time that all of you have been waiting for, the hooding. As we prepare to recognize you as graduates, I would like to take just a moment to explain the significance of the commencement hood itself. In a few minutes, we're gonna hear your names read, and so we're gonna be very aware of the fact that you come from different cultures, as do the faculty advisors who will be presenting your hoods. The percentage of international graduate students and faculty born outside the US is virtually identical, actually. The hooding ceremony, however, even though you come from all over the world, is very European, comes from the medieval European university traditions in the 12th and 13th century, when the universities were operating under the jurisdiction of the Church. So the people studying in those universities wore a cloak with a cowl or a hood attached, just like the monks who taught them. And that's where our stuff comes from. Today, the hood's colors symbolize school and broad discipline, and I would really like to have them represent a celebration of the cultural diversity of the Georgia Tech family. The presentation of the hood by the students' advisors symbolizes the welcoming of a graduate as a full-fledged member into a community of scholars. And then the moment of walking across the stage represents the culmination of much work and the celebration of potential and creativity of each of our doctoral candidates. So, as I call the name of each doctoral candidate and the advisor, I ask that the advisor first and then the student process onto the stage. Our hooding assistant, Senior Associate Dean Charles Isbell, will be there to greet you and assist your advisor in the hooding process. The hooding is an exam that your advisor can fail, please have patience with them. After you have received your hood, Provost Bras will congratulate you with a handshake, and then I ask that you return to your seat and show your fellow students the same respect that they've given you as you cross the stage. We do have something brand new in this hooding ceremony, and that is that I will not be reading your names, either yours or your advisors, but our name-reading assistant, our graduation Jill Watson, will actually be reading your names. So you can give us some feedback afterwards on how good a job she does, too, and because I'm freed up, then I'm going to shake advisor hands as you come across the stage. So now I'm pleased to welcome back Provost Rafael Bras, who will present the candidates for the doctoral degree. - Thank you very much, Susan. And congratulations on your graduation. (laughs) Very good. Well, the moment has come. You should begin standing, but show me your barcoded card. And remember you have to do that tonight also. This is the test, you don't get your diploma. - [Susan] Jill Watson will get very confused if you don't do that. - Very good, let's begin.

Personal

Vail was born in New Jersey about 1826.[2] He was married to Anna W. of Nova Scotia, and they had four children, Hugh W., John R., Lizzie H. (Mrs. Walter Irving Allen) and Frederick H.[3][4]

His drowning death on March 5, 1888, resulted from an inspection trip he was making of his property at Redondo Beach, California, where he was a director of the Redondo Beach (development) Company: A coroner's jury heard testimony on March 6 that he had been warned against making the short passage aboard a flat-bottomed skiff in a rough surf from the shore to a vessel lying at anchor off the coast, but he replied that he was "an old sea captain" and insisted upon the crossing. A huge wave pitched him and three sailors into the sea: He was wearing a heavy coat and drowned; the lightly clad crew survived.[2][5][6]

Professional

Vail's investments included "large holdings in land and water properties, and cattle and ranching interests both in California and Arizona."[3] He also owned a business in Total Wreck, Arizona.[7]

In 1887 Vail was elected treasurer of a nonprofit corporation "to secure and hold" property of the Episcopal Church in Southern California.[8]

That same year Vail, along with Judge Charles Silent and D. McFarland, bought a 1,400-acre plot of Rancho San Pedro, an area known as the Dominguez Property and Salt Works, including a 1-1/2-mile frontage along the beach, back a half mile to an elevation of 600 feet. "The surface is thus beautifully diversified and rolling, thus affording a view of surpassing loveliness and grandeur for miles in all directions, including Los Angeles, Ballona and the whole valley." A first-class hotel, new streets and other improvements were planned.[9]

After Vail's death, his estate was sued by L. J. Rose, who claimed that he had bought half of Vail's shares in the '49 Mining Company of Arizona for $4,000, but the shares were neither delivered nor the money refunded.[10]

Common Council

Vail represented the 5th Ward on the Los Angeles Common Council, the legislative branch of city government, during 1878–79.[11]
