RCC celebrates 41st Commencement

On Friday, May 10, at Rappahannock Community College’s 41st Commencement ceremony, college officials bestowed 664 well-earned degrees and certificates on the 505 members of the Class of 2013. Both these numbers considerably exceed the records set at Commencement 2012; as in previous years, they include students who completed their graduation requirements at the end of the Summer and Fall 2012 semesters as well as those who have just completed the Spring semester.


Among the credentials awarded were Associate of Arts and Sciences degrees in Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, and Psychology/Social Worker; and Associate of Applied Science degrees in Business Management, General Engineering: Electronics, General Engineering: Industrial Electricity, Nursing, and Protective Services Technology/Administration of Justice. One-year certificate programs included Administrative Support, Accounting, General Education, Law Enforcement, and Practical Nursing. Career studies certificates were awarded in Administrative Professional, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Culinary Arts, Electrician, Emergency Medical Services, Heating and Air Conditioning, Human Services, Industrial Electricity/Electronics, Leadership in Organizations, Legal Assisting, Medical Coding and Billing Specialist, Microcomputer Applications, Nurse Aide, Phlebotomy, and Web Design.

New for this year were the Governor’s Scholar medallions, honoring nine students in RCC’s dual enrollment program who completed an associate degree, a one-year certificate in General Education, or both, before graduating from high school. In addition, the ceremony recognized 42 graduates of RCC’s Adult Education and Middle College programs, who received high school diplomas or GED certificates.


Dr. Crowther

“Beautiful lawn, beautiful day, beautiful graduating class!” said RCC president Dr. Elizabeth Crowther as she welcomed attendees to the open-air ceremony. “This is an exciting time in so many lives.” She praised the hard work and team orientation of all concerned in organizing the event, and thanked faculty and staff members for the “caring, inspiring, and supporting” that helped bring the Class of 2013 to the realization of their goals.

Several guests of honor joined Dr. Crowther and Dr. Donna Alexander, RCC’s vice president of instruction and student development, on the platform. RCC’s dean of technology and distance education, Leslie Smith, accepted the rare honor of serving both as the keynote speaker and as the bearer of the ceremonial mace. Larry Schools, pastor of Ephesus Baptist Church in Dunnsville (Essex County), pronounced the invocation and benediction. Gerald B. Roane, chair of the RCC College Board, and the vice-chair, Stephen M. Tucker, were also present, as was Class of 2013 representative Meagan Gay. Several members of RCC’s College Board and of the RCC Educational Foundation Board, as well as RCC Professors Emeriti Catherine Courtney, George Heffernan, and Dr. Norman Howe, attended the ceremony as members of the audience. Also, for the first time at an RCC Commencement, the State Board for Community Colleges sent a representative (LaVonne Ellis).


Meagan Gay

After acknowledging the accomplishments of her fellow graduates, class representative Meagan Gay introduced Dean Leslie Smith, who began as an RCC instructor in Fall 1973, when the Warsaw Campus was new. At the time she taught secretarial science, business machines, and business management, but she later added accounting and information technology courses; in 1996, she was asked to supervise the technology department, which then had just two employees. Under her leadership and the stimulus of twenty-first-century innovation, it has grown and developed to become the basic substructure that supports all the services and curricula that RCC offers to its students, its employees, and the community.

“In 1973,” said Smith, “the most advanced technology we had was the IBM Selectric. That was ‘state of the art’ for us.” Through all the advances that have occurred since then, she has remained aware that “the tool doesn’t matter, as long as you know how to use it and be productive with it.” She has always worked with her staff to make the best technology available to the college, and credits them with much of her success: “If you surround yourself with great people, great things will happen to you.”


Dean Leslie Smith

Smith’s advice to the current graduates was to live by the three Ps: pride, passion, and proactivity. Pride in a job well done, she noted, was something that would sustain them in any difficulties they met, whether they transferred to another college or went directly into the workforce; and entwined with that pride must be a passion for whatever they worked at. “I have always been passionate about my job . . . even the challenges,” she said. “The only thing that kept me going all these years is that I loved what I did.” About the last element, proactivity, she said, “Don’t just let life happen to you! You can’t stand back—you have to move forward.” She ended with a quotation from Will Rogers: “Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”

Eight members of the Class of 2013 were called to the podium by College Board chair Gerald Roane to receive medallions recognizing them for graduating summa cum laude (with the highest honor), a distinction awarded only to those maintaining a grade-point average of 3.8 or better. These were: Charlotte Bundy, Leira Carreon, Amanda DiSpirito, Meagan Gay, Alexandra Lyth, Kirsten Minor, Samantha Umphlette, and Alexandra Wright. Also graduating summa cum laude were Susan Baldwin, Nancy Baughan, Lindsay Beale, Kristina Blevins, Joshua Divine, Shelley Flickinger, Bryan Garrison, Joseph Glascock, Holly Jackson, Daniel Jenkins, Randall Kenoyer, Winona Pearson, Brian Pemberton, Rachel Pollard, Alexander Ross, Debra Skirvin, Albert Smith, Ronald Smith, Bernadene Stammer, David Stevens, Leah Therrien, and José Yac; these graduates were unfortunately unable to attend the ceremony.
