  • ✪ Penn College Commencement: May 14, 2011 (Afternoon)


[ Music ] >> Good afternoon. The spring 2011 Commencement Ceremony begins with the entrance of the candidates for graduation from the Schools of Industrial and Engineering Technologies, Integrated Studies and Natural Resources Management from the Pennsylvania College of Technology, please join me in welcoming the candidates for graduation. [ Music ] >> Ladies, gentlemen, and candidates, entering next are the Pennsylvania College of Technology Faculty and Administration led by the school dean. The platform party will complete the processional. [ Music ] >> Please rise if you are able for the national anthem to be performed by Leah Nason, daughter of faculty member, Brad Nason. Gentlemen, please remove your caps. [ Pause ] [ Music ] [ Applause ] >> Thank you Leah. Please be seated. [ Pause ] >> Seated in the auditorium, are family and friends who have in many different ways supported these candidates to reach the goal represented by this ceremony. On the platform are the college faculty and staff who have motivated, encouraged, and inspired these candidates as they completed their coursework and their whole college experience. And before us are the candidates, the candidates for graduation who have become good friends, mentors, colleagues, developed relationships that will serve them well as they move into the future together. We join them as members of an extended support network to celebrate our involvement with these candidates and to witness their accomplishments. That celebration now begins. Presiding over the May commencement ceremony is the president of the Pennsylvania College of Technology, Dr. Davie Jane Gilmour [ Applause ] >> Good afternoon and welcome to the beautiful Community Arts Center. It's a fitting place for the commencement ceremony of May 2011. Today the graduates, you become part of a proud legacy. For nearly 100 years, this institution has prepared men and women to thrive in a changing world, to enter the work force, and to advance into positions that will influence the future. As we celebrate your commencement today, we also look forward to the contributions that you will make in the days to come. This is truly a ceremony that honors the past, the present, and the future. As we appreciate the efforts you put forward in order to reach this milestone, I ask you to take time today to gratefully acknowledge the family, the friends, the colleagues, the faculty, and the mentors who got you where you are. Today, is an important day for all of us, I hope that today, you will remember forever. Thank you. [ Applause ] >> Now, I would like to introduce Mr. Elliott Strickland, Interim Chief Student Affairs Officer. [ Pause ] >> Chairman Dunham, President Gilmour, distinguished faculty, and staff, parents, and guests, and most importantly Spring 2011 graduates. It is my honor to introduce your Spring 2011 Student Commencement Speaker, Kevin Werkheiser. Kevin is one of those impressive students that has melded his academic career and co curricular involvement to leave Penn College a better place than he found it. Academically, Kevin is one of our most outstanding students. He graduates today with a Bachelors Degree in Manufacturing Engineering Technology. He has been on the dean's list every semester and has earned a major GPA of a 3.1951 and for those of you keeping score at home that means that in his major classes he has earned only one B in his entire time at Penn College. Kevin's co-curricular involvement has been highlighted by his work with the college's Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and as the president of the Society of Automotive Engineers of the mini Baja Team. For those of you who aren't familiar with this national project, engineering students from schools like Auburn, Clemson, University of Maryland, Central Florida, Michigan, Michigan State, and Penn College are tasked to design and build an off road vehicle that will survive the severe punishment of rough terrain and sometimes even a little water. Last year's competition among a hundred colleges and universities from four countries, our team has finished 20th overall with an impressive 12th-place finish in the Suspension and Traction Challenge and a 14th place in the Endurance Race which was concluded over a 3-day series of grueling events. Kevin leads that team as they depart for Kansas in two weeks for these years competition. Kevin embodies all that we hope for our students. One of Kevin's faculty members in nominating him for this honor described him both as an incredible technician, able to design and build complex parts of the highest quality while at the same time being an exceptional professional and leader that earns the respect of his peers with his interpersonal skills, please help me in welcoming your May 2011 student commencement speaker, Kevin Werkheiser. [ Applause ] >> Good afternoon everyone. Thank Mr. Strickland for the introduction. It's my pleasure to speak on behalf of the graduating class of 2011. I'm very proud to be chosen as a commencement speaker. I was first approached by my adviser for the Society of Manufacturing Engineers after being nominated for the position. He felt that I was a good candidate for the school industrial engineering nomination. He then went on to ensure me that there are many other nominations and a slim chance of me being chosen. After seeing the e-mail informing me that I was chosen, I was quiet surprised. It was a major honor and after some deliberation I was then eager to accept the position. Now, I needed to prepare a speech and it wasn't until after finals I started thinking about what to talk about. I then realized what I had got myself into. When I started writing the speech I read many different types of speeches that were given at other graduation. I realized many graduation speeches have a typical cliches of we made it or you are starting a new chapter in life. We all heard these before and I felt this is extremely over used. Some speeches offered the graduating class a piece of advice. I could try to give you some sort of life changing advice but everyone experiences of life are different. So, I figured why not talk about memories we had at Penn College. Over the past four years, we had so many changes at school such as the Dalton Hall dormitory, the new welding lab, the remodeling of the Hager lifelong learning center, and the recent construction of the masonry building. We also remember what used to be called the [inaudible] room. The school has changed in the last four years and I'm eager to see what it will look like in 10 years. All of us have our own reason for choosing to attend Penn College. This reason might have been the unique types of major offered or the small student faculty ratio. I appeared to this school because of the extensive hands on experience and small class sizes. Whatever your reason may be we all completed the necessary requirements and class work to receive our degree of choice, even though these requirements weren't always that easy. Whether it's meant skipping a class to study or maybe pouring a whole night to finish a paper or perhaps attending those Friday morning classes even though you're head was still spinning from the night before. Many challenges were faced but you were able to overcome these challenges because you chose too. So now what? Many of us are asking our selves this question. For some this maybe you'll find a career and settle down, some of us may want to continue our education at this institution and perhaps another one. Whatever you chose for yourself, I hope you are successful in life. I came across a quote by Winston Churchill that I found pretty interesting. He said, success consist of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm. We have all experienced hardships in our life but these experiences made you the person you are today. I would lastly like to remind to thank your family, friends, and faculty who helped you complete your education. I would like to give a special thanks to John [inaudible] for all the help and time he spent contributing to the Penn College, mini Baja team, the team now will be competing in the Society of Automotive Engineers mini Baja competition in two weeks. I would personally like to thank to my family and friends for all their support and yes even my brother and sister, although they are a bit of pain sometimes. Congratulations class of 2011, you're now about 5 minutes closer to going to the Bullfrog. [ Applause ] >> The alumni achievement award is presented to an individual who graduated from the college within the last 10 years and who has demonstrated the importance of their Penn College education through noteworthy professional accomplishments or dedicated volunteer service. This year we are pleased to present the Alumni Achievement Award to two individuals who followed-- following their graduation in 2001 went on to become partners in an award-winning landscape service company called Nature's Accent. Travis Breininger and Justin Bentz really know how to grow. They know how to grow a business. Just 10 years after graduating they employed 5 other people in their business which provides landscape design, hardscape installation, and property maintenance to commercial and residential property in Berks, Schuylkill County, and surrounding counties. Both men are Pennsylvania certified horticulturists and are also certified by the Interlocking Concrete Paver Institute and the national concrete management association. Justin is a certified pesticide applicator. Under their leadership, Nature's Accent has received multiple awards from the Pennsylvania Landscape and Nursery Association and a 2009 Landscape Contractor Partner of the Year for East Coast Region. Their work has been feature in a number of magazines and catalogues that are well known to the industry. In 2010, Justin and Travis had the opportunity to volunteer for the Emmy Award winning program Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Their business was the staging site for hundreds of plans included in the makeover and they partnered with other Pennsylvania landscapers to complete the landscaping for this project in 24 hours. Justin and Travis have returned to campus every year as alumni volunteers sharing their personal and their professional experiences. Both have served as judges for the Pennsylvania Landscape and Nursery Association and the Professional Landcare Network. Travis is on the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania Landscape and Nursery Association and he is the chairman of the Professional Development Committee and he also won the group's Green Achiever award in 2010. Justin is borough councilman, a volunteer fireman and a Pennsylvania forest fire warden. Both of these men are fathers of young children and I wonder if they can cut their own grass. [ Laughter ] >> They are very busy. It is now my honor to introduce to you two very busy and impressive Penn College Alumni, Travis M. Breininger and Justin Bentz our 2011 alumni achievement award recipients. [ Applause ] >> We're trying to keep this short. I just wanted to thank a few people and say a couple of things. Pretty much we're very honored by this award, very unexpected award. We found a very good education here at college. It was very rewarding to us. We love doing our job everyday and using what we learned here and we love to get back to the school. We'd like to thank a few teachers, Mr. Richwell [phonetic] which isn't here any longer, Mr. Michael [inaudible], Mr. Dennis Skinner, Mr. Dennis Fink and especially Mr. Carl Bower for his thoughtful nomination and Penn College for this award. >> Most of all we would like to thank our family especially our wives Christine and Corinne for their continued love and support and our biggest fans, our boys Brady, Alex and Owen [phonetic], and finally to the graduates, be proud of your Penn College education you have just or are just going to receive momentarily and know that you have just started a good reputation for yourself. Congratulation class of 2011 and may you all have a great success story. Thank you very much. [ Applause ] >> Teaching is the heart of Penn College and we place a very high value on the teaching and learning process. In recognizing teaching excellence, we demonstrate the best at Penn College. As we celebrate the fine work that takes place in our classrooms and our laboratories, we confirm our mission. The Distinguished Teaching Awards are presented each May at commencement to full-time faculty members who have been nominated by students and colleagues for their excellence in instruction. Since 1982-87 Distinguished Teaching Awards have been presented. I'm pleased to announce that the earlier commencement ceremonies, Excellence in Teaching Award were presented to Chef Mike Ditchfield, instructor in hospitality management and culinary arts and Chris Holley, assistant professor of automotive technology. [ Applause ] >> Ladies and gentlemen, as many of you know, the legal corporate body of the Pennsylvania College of Technology is its board of directors. This is the body that by our charter is given final responsibility for the governance, welfare and all other interests pertaining to the college. Though some responsibilities are delegated, ultimate authority rests with the board. At this time, I would like to call upon Dr. Robert Dunham, chairman of the board of directors, to authorize the conferring of degrees at this ceremony. Dr. Dunham. [ Applause ] >> Thank you Provost Starkey. President Gilmour, members of the faculty, ladies, and gentleman, and especially the class of 2011. I know this is a very special occasion for you today. Through your hard work you have earned these degrees but also with the supports, and guidance, and wisdom of the faculty you worked with, and also from family and friends who have supported you. On behalf of the board of directors of the Pennsylvania College of Technology, I offer you our congratulations and best wishes for your future and for all those family, faculty, and friends who have supported you, you have our thanks as well. Now I turn to my official duty. President Gilmour, by virtue of the authority vested in the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania College of Technology, I authorize you on behalf of the board to confer on each of these candidates the degrees earned as certified by the appropriate deans. >> Thank you. [ Pause ] >> >> Will the candidates for Bachelor of Science degree, please rise. [ Pause ] >> Dr. Gilmour, upon recommendation of the faculty I am pleased to inform you that these men and women have satisfactorily completed the requirements for the Bachelor of Science degree. >> By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania College of Technology, I do hereby confer upon you the Bachelor of Science degrees that you have earned with all of the rights and privileges, and with congratulations from the board of directors, the administration, and the faculty. Congratulations. [ Applause ] >> You may be seated. Will the candidates for all associate degrees and certificates please rise. [ Pause ] >> Dr. Gilmour, upon the recommendation of the faculty I am pleased to inform you that these men and women have satisfactorily completed the requirements for their respective associate degrees and certificates. >> By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Board of Directors of the Pennsylvania College of Technology, I do hereby confer upon you the associate degree and certificates that you have earned with all the rights and privileges, and congratulations from the board of directors, the administration, and the faculty. Congratulations. [ Applause ] >> Will the baccalaureate graduates also please rise and join me. Everybody just stand up now. [ Laughter ] >> Good, don't make me nervous. When you entered this theater not too long ago you entered as candidates for the certificates and degrees that you have earned. You have now had those candidate status converted to graduates and you have those degrees conferred upon you. As a symbol of your entry into the world of educated men and women I ask you to join me as I turn the tassel of your graduation representative that symbolizes you are graduates of the Pennsylvania College of Technology, congratulations. [ Applause ] >> You may be seated. As individuals and institutions we pass through clear stages of development, points in time when we grow into new roles and new responsibilities. This is a transition event for everyone. Today we will recognize individuals with academic honors. Outstanding academic achievement will be recognized for all students. The gold, silver or white cords that they wear during the ceremony, white for honors, silver for high honors and gold for highest honors. In addition we are proud to recognize the graduates who are members of Phi Theta Kappa and their gold stoles and tassels will identify them. We are thrilled to recognize the graduates of Alpha Chi Honor Society and white stoles will identify these students. We'd now like to ask all veterans graduating to please stand and you will identify them by their red, white and blue cords. Will the Veterans please stand. [ Applause ] >> I'd like to tell you about our veterans. We're very proud of our Penn College veteran students. In our veterans attending Penn College we have three winners of the Purple Heart, five Bronze Star recipients, 76 Iraq service medal recipients and 17 Afghanistan service medal recipients and joining us today are two newly commissioned members of the Armed Forces, thank you very much. [ Applause ] >> You maybe seated. At this time I'd like to take a moment to honor the memory of a young woman who is not here to celebrate her commencement this weekend. Tracy Garis was a student in our dental hygiene program when she died in a traffic accident last summer. Tracy was a very active Penn College student. She served as a resident assistant and a student ambassador. Her death touched many students, faculty and staff very deeply. She was an inspiration in her short life and her death inspired Penn College friends to remember her in a very special way, establishing the Tracy A. Garis memorial scholarship. The commitment shown by our student body in vigorously raising funds to establish the scholarship was nothing short of remarkable. Frankly I was in awe. I cannot ever remember seeing a more focused group of students come to together for common purpose to honor one of their own. The SGA organization and the energy of the leadership of Adam Yoder and Greg Miller was nothing short of extra ordinary. By the end of the academic year from September until April these students had raised thirty five thousand eight hundred and twenty three dollars to fully endow the scholarship. Their work is to be commented. [ Applause ] >> This an appropriate way to honor a young a woman who left a lasting legacy on our campus. The Tracy A Garis Scholarship will be awarded annually to a dental hygiene student who is an active leader on campus. We believe Tracy would have wanted it that way. In an earlier ceremony this weekend members of Tracy's family accepted a diploma on behalf of a young woman who meant so much to the class of 2011 and to every one at Penn College. As we continue with today's ceremony Tracy's memory will live in our hearts. At this time Carolyne Strickland the assistant vice president for academic services and the respected school representative will present the candidates. We know that you're excited to capture this moment digitally and therefore we simply ask that you leave the area right in front of the official photographer open and otherwise feel free to come forward and capture your picture. With that we will begin.

You'll hear from us monthly via the alumni e-news and of course Facebook. I look forward to welcoming you back to campus for lots of activities and event and most importantly for you to tell us about your success. Now, I know you're ready to go of the next phase of your celebration. Yes, I know that. But, I'm going to ask you for just the next two minutes graduates to imagine that there is nobody else here but you and me. It's my honor to represent this very talented faculty behind us and have the last moment to share some thoughts with you because I'm not sure you have any clue how much you've touched our lives. You did really well today. You turned the tassel and you walked across the stage and you made your family and your friends really proud. This is another page in the scrapbook of your life. Not only have you done a good job here today at the ceremony but over the last few years you've earned your degree. Good job, and well done. Today you heard the applause and the cheers and I hope the excitement and the energy, and the buzz will stay with you through the weekend. However, we all know that most days there is no applause. There is no excitement, and there are no cheers. Because when nobody's clapping and nobody's taking picture for the scrapbook of your life I wanna know how you're going to know you're doing a good job? There is no test study for. There are no grades to earn, what will be the measure you use to determine your success. Let's ask ourselves the question, what is a good job anyway? Often people say I'm going to college because I want a good job. How do you define it, what does it mean to you? Each of us has to define it for ourselves and it means very different things to very different people. I would suggest to you that a good job is a sense of pride, purpose and a connection to the world around you. And a good job is one that gives you the opportunity to use your talents, your knowledge and your skills to make life better, not only for yourself but also for others. You see doing a good job, often means doing good for someone else. You might enjoy earning a good pay check, and I'm sure you're thinking about that. But your real sense of accomplishment will come from knowing that you've made a difference in the world. A voice of wisdom that we know as anonymous once said a quote that makes it pretty simple, "to the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world." What you do and what you share with others in your Penn College family will make it different. I encourage you to make the most of every opportunity to do a good a job. It's important for you to realize that today you join a very small minority in the world population. You know that less than seven percent of the populations in the world today have a college degree. In the United States where we have greater access to higher education than many nations in the world only 28 percent of the population have earned a college degree. Now take a minute and let those facts sink in. You may not have realized it but you're a very privileged group of people. You have what millions, millions only dream about. You have a college education. You've earned you're degree and you've done it with the help of your family and you're friends. You've done it with your faculty, and the support of many. You worked hard but it is not that you're only effort is your responsibility. It's you're responsibility now to put your degree to work and do a good job in the world. I suspect you will remember not too long ago when you came to college and you had no clue what you were going to do. And now it's a reality. I think of that statement often when I hear people talk about worrying about the world and the situations that we're in. Maya Angelou said, "Nothing will work unless you do." Nothing will work unless you do. Opportunities come to those who work. I don't mean to that people can't fall on hard times. And I don't mean that people can't have difficulty. But over the course of my life I've come to fundamentality agree and believe that those who are willing to face their challenges are the ones that will have lives that prevail. Hard times will go away because they are persistent. They keep trying until they have their dream. You're ready to go to work we know that. You're ready to get a good job and you're going to do a good job. You're going to put your best effort forward to listen, to learn and respond with all the knowledge you have. An ancient Philosopher Lao Tzu said "When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." Remember this when you face those moments of challenges and you'll no doubt remember mornings you did not want to get up and go to class. You'll remember that when you think of teachers you thought were too hard, papers that were too hard to write and a project partner who failed to hold up their end of the bargain. You had excuses then, but you didn't make them or you wouldn't be sitting here today. Aren't you glad you didn't give up? Nothing will work unless you do. So take the lessons you have learned and set the world on fire. With each action you take you should write your own life story. Make it one you want to remember. Make it one that others wanna remember. Do it for yourself. Do it for your family and friends. Do it for the lives lost like those of your classmate Tracy Garis. Do it for everyone in the world who will have never had a chance to get a college degree. Do a good job and you will always have good fortune. Congratulations to the class of 2011 our new Penn College Alumni. Now go out into the world and make us proud. [ Applause ] >> I invite those who are able to stand. Gentlemen remove your caps and everyone to join in the singing of the Penn College Alma mater. The words may be found on page two of your programme. [ Pause ] [ Singing ] [ Applause ] >> Thank you please be seated and remain seated until the platform party has recessed. [ Music ] >> We ask that the audience remain seated while the graduates exit next. The ushers will conduct your recessional and we ask that you continue all the way to the street outside so that you'll be able to connect with your family more easily. Best wishes and congratulations. [ Applause ] [ Music ]
