SPRING 2017: April 8, 2017 was a Major milestone for many.
Students and families gathered at St. Matthews Baptist Church to applaud deserving Sullivan Tech graduates. Spring Commencement conferred 14 Bachelor’s Degrees, 39 Associate’s Degrees, and two Certificates to deserving graduates. The Sullivan College of Technology & Design Scholastic Achievement Award was presented to Gregory Sirel, an AAS graduate of Computer Aided Design and Drafting, recognizing him as earning the highest cumulative grade point average of all the Spring graduates.
The Sullivan College of Technology & Design Leadership Award was presented to Emily Yates, an AAS graduate of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, recognizing her overall scholastic achievement, ingenuity and leadership capabilities based on faculty vote. AMT Department Chair Cory Lewison said, “Emily had demonstrated real leadership skills. She was a real stand out from her first Robotics Summer Camp through her Associates degree in Advanced Manufacturing Technology. She will continue to shine as she works toward her Bachelor’s degree.”
This year’s Guest Speaker was Laura Owens, a Senior Partner with JYB3 Group. She assists clients working to improve Kentucky in a range of areas, especially in workforce development, education, and technology solutions allowing our government to operate more effectively and efficiently. Her words of wisdom were inspiring to all!
The Spring Commencement ceremony concluded with a reception in the Fellowship Hall, where friends, family, faculty, and staff gathered for refreshments and accolades. Congrats to all of the Graduates! We look forward to seeing YOU in cap and gown soon!
