>>Dr. Boucher: Students, please rise and face the
aisle as the
faculty and the President's party process to the stage.
>>Dr. Boucher: Good morning.
I'm Dr Andrea Boucher, professor from the Department of
Kinesiology, and I'm in Physical Education Teacher Preparation.
As a Grand Marshal, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the
winter commencement exercises for the College of Business and
Economics, the College of Education, and the College of
Health Professions.
And we are streaming this graduation ceremony live, over
the web.
So welcome to all the family and friends of the graduates who are
all around the United States, and I know many around the
I'd like to introduce to you Dr Maravene Loeschke, the 13th
president of Towson University.
Madam President, the University community is assembled for
>>President Loeschke: Welcome and good morning.
I welcome you to the 148th commencement in the proud
history of Towson University.
Since 1976, 74 different commencements have taken place
in this room.
Probably for most of our students, you weren't even
around then, but the exciting thing about today, and the
pensive thing about today, is this is the last of the
commencements in this area, and starting in May, they will be
next door in our new arena.
So, this is a time to remember that you were in the very last
classes to graduate from here.
Today, we're going to celebrate you as our newest graduates and
your significant academic achievements.
It has been our pleasure, and I do mean indeed our pleasure, to
guide and mentor you and watch your transformation.
Think about the first days you arrived, orientation, transfer
orientation, as a freshman.
Just think for a minute.
You had some hopes and some dreams, you thought maybe you
knew what your major was, and maybe that's indeed what you're
graduating with, maybe you've changed several times, but now
you're on a new path in your life.
Remember that first day for just a little bit right now, and then
remember, maybe your first class even, and the friends you've
made, and how you've grown, and how it's been our pleasure to be
there on that journey with you.
Now, I ask everyone to please stand or remain standing for our
National Anthem.
It'll be sung by Ms Emily Gradowski who is receiving a
Bachelor of Science in Music.
She is going to be accompanied by Ms Kelly Brittingham, who
will be interpreting.
Ms Brittingham is receiving a Bachelor of Science in Deaf
Studies, and gentlemen, please remove your caps.
>>: NATIONAL ANTHEM (performed by Ms. Emily Gradowski)
>>President Loeschke: At this time, I would also like us to
pause for a moment of silence in honor of the faculty, staff, and
students who have passed away during this year.
The faculty and staff that we have lost are Penny Shafent
Simpson, Billy Hauserman, Nancy Marvle, Paul Poman, Dorothy
Siegel, and Donald Winler.
The students we have lost are Martin Kaufman, Matthew
Cheswick, Alan Daschle, Brendan Huber, Jessica O'Shaughnessy,
and Kara Becker.
A moment of silence please.
>>President Loeschke: Everyone may be seated.
The flags on display represent the 17 countries of the 70
international students graduating from Towson this
And also on stage are the flags representing the 77 nations of
our current international population of 523 students.
We are very pleased to have each and every one of you in our
Towson family.
As you can see, an education at Towson University not only
serves our region in the state of Maryland, but also, it
reaches across the nation and around the globe.
And in addition to the international flags displayed
today, you will notice a number of graduates, faculty, and staff
wearing black and gold pins, signifying their support of the
Tiger commencement pledge.
This pledge is a voluntary commitment to become more active
in communities and community service, and to work for
positive change in social and environmental conditions.
We applaud these efforts for all of our graduates, our faculty,
and our staff.
And now, I call upon Brandy Hall, our superb president of
our Student Government Association, to introduce
representatives from the University's various boards.
>>Brandy Hall: Thank you, President Loeschke.
Today, we are pleased to be joined by a representative of
the University System of Maryland and Board of Regents,
Dr Paul Vance.
This 17 member board is appointed by the governor to
appoint the University System of Maryland Chancellor and the 12
university presidents, formulate policies, and oversee the
academic, administrative, and financial operations of the
system institutions.
Dr Vance brings more than 30 years of experience in higher
education to the Board of Regents, including his 10 years
as the Superintendent of Schools for Montgomery County Public
Schools, the District of Columbia Public School System,
and Deputy Superintendent for Baltimore City Public Schools.
He is the recipient of numerous awards including the Lifetime
Achievement Award and Hall of Fame induction from the National
Association of Black School Educators.
Please, this morning, welcome USM Regent, Dr Paul Vance.
>>Dr Paul Vance: I'm delighted to join you and extend best
wishes from the University System of Maryland, on behalf of
the Board of Regents, on this absolutely tremendous day.
It is an honor to share this occasion with your President,
Maravene Loeschke, who is doing a tremendous job leading Towson
Under her leadership, Towson's expanding its role as a regional
leader, both economically and culturally, making Towson
University a vibrant hub for the entire Greater Baltimore
Towson, Maryland's Metropolitan University, is clearly an
institution of choice for many of Maryland's brightest
I know even greater strides remain in this important area.
Most importantly, it is an honor to be here to recognize and
congratulate you, the members of the graduating class.
What you have accomplished has taken hard work; it has taken
persistence and dedication.
Today, we celebrate the completion of this journey.
I know your family and friends take a great deal of pride in
what you have accomplished.
They have shared in your sacrifice, and certainly they
should share in your success today.
No matter what direction your life now takes, no matter what
challenges you next will confront, know that your
education here has prepared you ever so well.
Towson also takes justifiable pride in serving as an integral
part of the social, cultural, and intellectual life of the
The ethic of service runs deep within the Towson community.
I hope you will continue to honor this tradition.
Once again, congratulations to all of you and know that the
entire University System of Maryland family wishes you the
best in all the years to come.
Thank you.
>> Brandy Hall: Thank you, Dr Vance.
This morning, we are also pleased to have with us Mr Ted
Zaleski and Mr Steve Peck of the University Board of Visitors,
the President's advisory group of the area's top professionals.
A Towson alum, Mr Peck is the Senior Vice President of Global
Strategic Service Partners at SAP, the world leader in
enterprise software and software services.
In 2009, he served as Towson University's first CEO in
residence, strengthening TU's academic programs in global
business, marketing, finance, healthcare, and technology.
He has long served on the Towson University Board of Visitors and
will bring greetings and congratulations today on behalf
of the board.
Please welcome Mr Steve Peck.
>>Mr. Peck: Thank you, Brandy, for that very warm introduction.
Good morning President Loeschke, Interim Provost DiLisio,
distinguished guests, honored faculty, families, and
On behalf of the President's advisory group, the Board of
Visitors, I bring you greetings and congratulations on this
significant accomplishment.
It is our sincere pleasure to see you graduate today and
become a part of a prestigious Towson University legacy of
scholarship, personal excellence, and public service.
It's a privilege to serve on the Board of Visitors and share our
expertise with the president.
The Board of Visitors is comprised of leaders from a very
diverse set of backgrounds, much like yourselves, and experiences
that make us collectively a group of valuable advisers to
the president.
Currently, the Board of Visitors is comprised of an architect, a
professional dancer, a student, a faculty member, a former state
superintendent, a community leader, a realtor, and several
business executives.
With all those diverse backgrounds, we are all aligned
in one way, to leverage our passion and our commitment to
advance this great university.
Today, we celebrate your soon-to-be economic
achievements, your academic achievements, both individually
and collectively, and acknowledge the hard work,
commitment, and perseverance that fueled them.
Today, some of you are graduating summa cum laude, some
of you are graduating barely made it, many of you are
graduating in between.
I just want you to know, we are proud of each and every one of
You know, the opportunity to go to college really is a privilege
and you are fortunate to have attended such a world-class
institution as Towson.
But we are also equally as fortunate to have had you as our
I sincerely mean that.
Under the visionary leadership of President Loeschke, Towson is
a university on the move in all the right directions and your
academic achievements that we are celebrating today are
foundational to this transformation.
Now is the time to apply and leverage everything that you
have learned here and achieve great success going forward, and
of course, pay back your parents and all those student loans.
Whatever your future holds, whether it's furthering your
academic career, working directly with patients in need,
or aspiring to be a CEO, I hope that you will always hold Towson
University very near and dear to your heart and don't forget to
be an active and involved alum in supporting the future of this
great school and therefore the students who will follow you.
You will no doubt receive plenty of advice before the end of the
ceremony today, and I couldn't resist throwing in a nugget or
two, myself.
You know, it's clear today, in a rapidly advancing world of
communications and social networking, that social
networking is very fundamental to everything we do, but one
thing I want to say in the age of Facebook and Twitter is don't
forget that life is a contact sport.
Don't ever underestimate the importance of strong
interpersonal skills and the ability to have quality face to
face interactions in your future.
As the CEO and senior exec, I have had the opportunity to read
and work with thousands of dedicated professionals.
The values my organizations have embraced as a foundation of
success include integrity, professionalism, accountability,
innovation, passion for others, and of these, my favorite is
And that comes across really well face-to-face.
So, give me a passionate, energetic individual anytime.
Give me a group of innovative, passionate employees with high
integrity and it's amazing what can be accomplished.
If you exhibit these qualities and confidence in all you do,
and bring your A-game every day I have no doubt you'll do very
well in your future careers.
And then, of course, you can tell all your friends and
families about your success on Facebook and Twitter.
As Towson graduates, you now hold an important responsibility
to be good stewards of your education and use it to make a
difference in the world.
Make it count.
So again, on behalf of the Board of Visitors, I once again offer
our sincerest congratulations.
Wherever life takes you from here, continue to seek
opportunities to lead, serve, and learn.
Thank you very much.
>>Brandy Hall: Thank you, Mr Peck, for your words of wisdom.
This morning we are also fortunate to welcome Mr Lance
Johnson, President of Towson University's Alumni Association,
who will bring words of welcome and congratulations to our new
Please welcome Mr Johnson.
>>Mr Johnson: Good morning and greetings from the Alumni
As a member of the Alumni Association Board of Directors
and a proud graduate of 1993, I am honored to be here
representing more than a 133,000 alumni who graduated from this
remarkable institution.
Each of these alumni has their own story to tell about the
success they have achieved as a result of their education from
My own story would not have been possible without the education,
experiences, and connections I made here at Towson.
Today, you join 2,170 fellow graduates that make up the class
of 2012.
1,523 of you will receive a Bachelor's degree, 635 of you
are receiving a Master's degree or certificate, and 12 of you
are receiving a Doctoral degree from Towson University, so
Your class is 63% female and 37% male.
The average age of the undergraduate student this year,
of the graduating class, is 24 and the graduate student is 32.
The youngest graduate of 2012 is Oluwadamilare Ajayi, who is
receiving a Bachelor's degree in Biology and Chemistry at the age
of 20.
Our most seasoned graduate is Dominic Mezzanotte who, at the
age of 71, is receiving his Doctorate of Science degree in
Informational Technology
>>Mr Johnson: May I add, that Dr Mezzanotte is a third time
Towson graduate, having also earned his Bachelor of Science
in Music in 1996 and his Master's of Music in 1999.
Your class represents 20 out of our 50 states, with Pennsylvania
and New York having the largest number of graduates outside the
state of Maryland.
And, for the record, 135 of you come from Pennsylvania and 61
come from New York.
Seven of you are the sole representatives from your home
For those of you receiving your Master's and Doctorate degree
today, we know that 8% of you have also received your
Bachelor's degree from Towson.
So a second congratulations is in order.
>>Mr Johnson: We know this class was very engaged and active as
the majority of our current students, seniors, and graduate
students participated in an internship or experiential
learning project this past semester.
Additionally, members of this graduating class were involved
in intercollegiate athletics and a variety of co-curricular
All of this while having an average GPA of 3.27.
We know that most of you will stay right here in Maryland
after graduation because, on average, 73% of TU alumni call
Maryland home, although, alumni live in every state across
America and 79 countries.
Perhaps you will join the nearly 6,000 alumni that married a
fellow Towson graduate or you will become one of over a
thousand alumni who came back to their alma mater in a faculty or
staff position.
Whatever path you decide to take, remember you will always
be part of the growing Towson alumni network and we want you
to stay connected with your alma mater.
The Alumni Association will help you do this and we look forward
to hearing about your accomplishments and successes.
On behalf of thousands who have preceded you, it is my privilege
to congratulate you on your outstanding achievements.
Congratulations again on this very special day.
>>President Loeschke: Thank you, Mr Johnson.
Now, may I ask that all of the parents and grandparents in the
audience, who are also alumni of Towson University, would you
please stand?
>>President Loeschke: Parents and grandparent alumni.
And now, all Towson alumni in the room stand, not you guys
yet, you're not alumni yet, everybody who is an alum.
That's a lot of our staff and faculty, as well.
>>President Loeschke: We really want to thank you for your pride
in your alma mater and your continued loyalty and support.
Once again, now I call upon Brandy Hall to introduce our
first student speaker.
>>Brandy Hall: Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, it is now
my pleasure and honor to introduce our undergraduate
speaker, Ms Chipe Geatty.
Ms Geatty is graduating today from the College of Health
Professions with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
She was originally born in the small country of Togo in West
Africa and immigrated to the United States at the age of
From the time she was in elementary school, Ms Geatty has
always excelled in her classes.
She attended the Towson University Nursing program at
the system of Maryland in Hagerstown and completed her
senior practicum on the Women's and Infants Unit at the Meritus
Medical Center.
Ms Geatty hopes to practice in maternity nursing or pediatrics.
She plans on pursuing a Master's degree in Community Public
Health Nursing and to one day become an educator.
Everyone please give a warm welcome to Ms Chipe Geatty.
>>Chipe Geatty: Thank you, Brandy Hall, our SGA President,
for that introduction.
Good morning, President Loeschky, distinguished guests,
honored faculty, family, and fellow graduates.
It is truly an honor to be in front of you today.
While each of us has our own Towson story, based on our
unique experiences, I am confident that there's something
consistent for each of us.
Our time in Towson University represents a time of growth and
change in our lives.
Graduations naturally lend themselves to reflection, and
that's exactly what I've been doing for the past few weeks.
Foremost, I am thankful to have grown intellectually,
professionally, and personally.
I'm appreciative of the committed faculty that helped me
and challenged me to excel.
I'm grateful for the friendships and lifelong bonds that I've
made with my classmates as we worked towards, and completed,
our nursing degrees.
We all know that change is consistent, but when I think
about the changes that have occurred around me during my
undergraduate experience, I am really taken back.
Collectively, we have elected and reelected this nation's
first African-American president.
>>Chipe Geatty: Our world has endured numerous natural
disasters, from earthquakes, to hurricanes that caused
devastation in Haiti, Japan, and along our very own eastern
Our nation has suffered tragic mass shootings that have taken
the lives of the innocent, and we have ended the war in Iraq,
and we are slowly coming out of the Great Recession.
As I begin my career in the healthcare workforce, I can
hardly imagine the changes I'll see in the years to come.
Developments in technologies that we all depend on and the
Health Care Reform Act promised to change healthcare forever,
but one thing that is guaranteed to never change is the need for
human connection and the uniqueness of each human spirit.
Health care, first and foremost, is about caring for and being in
service to others.
I would like to take this moment to thank my family and my close
friends who have been my support and my rock, as I work towards
this degree.
Fellow graduates, as I look around this room of faces known
and unknown, I can only imagine how we, graduates of Towson
University, will change the world in the years to come.
Thank you and congratulations, Class of 2012.
>>Ms Jackson: Thank you, Ms Geatty.
Good morning.
I am Lisa Jackson, President of the Graduate Student
Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, it is now my pleasure
to introduce Mr Joel Avrunin, who is graduating from the
College of Business and Economics with a Master's in
Business Administration.
Mr Avrunin grew up in Potomac, Maryland, and in 2001 graduated
from Cornell University with a Bachelor's in Science and
Electrical Engineering.
Out of school, he worked as a design engineer, but in 2006,
his interest in business aspired him to take a job in sales and
applications engineer with Tektronix, later a part of
He started at Towson in 2010, and since that time, has been
promoted to an account manager and, most recently, to a
regional sales manager.
In his spare time, he loves to learn and teach about
technology, whether with his four children or in his online
technology blog.
Today, he lives in Baltimore and is working to apply his
technical knowledge, business acumen, long-term vision to be a
uniquely effective corporate leader in his field.
Please welcome Mr Joel Avrunin.
>>Mr Avrunin: Thank you, Lisa Jackson, our GSA President, for
the introduction.
Good morning, President Loeschke, distinguished guests,
honored faculty, my family, and fellow graduates.
With my undergraduate degree in engineering, I sought to answer
a question.
Is science the sum of all knowledge?
Our society accepts that if you learn the science behind the
system, you're now the expert, you can tackle any problem.
So with that mindset, I started at Towson, wanting to become an
expert in the science of business.
Specifically, how do you manage organizational change?
If science is the sum of all knowledge, then an expert in the
science of engineering can design, and an expert in the
science of business should be able to manage.
I foresaw going to class, learning the skills that I would
need to effectively manage.
If you read my schedule, it looked like everything in the
business, marketing, accounting, project management.
And yet, in an economics course, I learned the prescient words of
the Austrian economist, Friedrich Hayek.
He said that knowledge of the circumstances of time and place
were far more critical than all of the science we could ever
hope to learn.
From Hayek, we learned that since a manager cannot be
everywhere at once, he must empower those he has employed to
make decisions on their own.
He teaches that the further removed a decision maker is from
the point of knowledge, the slower the organization will be
to react to change.
So, the key to management is hands-off.
So, why did we come to school to become managers?
So, let's consider an example.
You go out York Road, drive up to I-695, what will you find?
Cars, driving at 60 miles per hour and generally they don't
collide, but there is no manager telling the cards how to drive.
Each driver makes his own decision.
So how does that work?
It works because the cars follow rules of the road, they stay in
their lanes, they follow the traffic laws, and if a car
decides to change lanes, it signals.
It communicates to another driver.
An effective manager looks at his company like that
He establishes a common vision for his team, which would be
like the rules for the road.
He then acts as a conduit for communication for his team.
That would be like the turn signals of the car, but when a
car comes too close in traffic, it's the driver who must swerve,
not the Maryland Highway Administration, and a manager
has to empower his team like this, and yet do we really think
Steve Jobs is this visionary CEO.
He had created a company that made the iPhone.
We all say, why can't all CEOs be like Steve Jobs, and yet, do
we want to work for autocratic micromanaging CEOs?
Does that really empower our success?
We may laud Apple's successes.
We all have our iPhones and igadgets.
But at the end of the day, remember the same organizational
culture back in the 1980's gave us the failed Apple Lisa, and
just three months ago gave us Apple Maps.
That organizational culture can't create consistent winners.
So, even in our own lives, we value the manager who enables
our own success, not micromanaging us.
My economics professor, he calls his management blog, "Giving up
That is the greatest lesson of management.
Whether in corporate America, we're not all managers; many of
us are parents, even as a parent is giving up control.
As was mentioned, I was recently promoted to sales manager and I
had to take my old sales territory and hand it to
somebody new.
Capable though he is, he won't run it the same way as me.
But he won't be successful unless I give him the latitude
to run things in his own manner, while giving him coaching along
the way.
As I become a manager, I really am giving up control.
Those of us who are parents experience the same thing.
Each of our lives is a sequence of thousands of daily decisions
we have to make.
And yet, we can't make those decisions for our children, we
must create a vision and a framework so they are successful
making those decisions on their own.
In closing, what I have learned most from my experience at
Towson is that the true success of management comes not from
doing the job of everybody else, it comes in recognizing that
when an organization must adapt to new information in the
market, the best person to react is the one nearest the change.
The work of a manager is to create common vision for his
team, empower his individual employees to act quickly in a
changing market, and to foster common communication, so that
that change and that knowledge can propagate throughout the
Thank you very much, and congratulations graduates.

Would Professor Timothy Sullivan please join the President, here
the center podium, for a presentation?
The President's Award for Distinguished Service recognizes
intellectual talent and professional service to a member
of the University faculty.
This award is given to an individual who has dedicated 20
or more years of service to higher education, and has made
an important contribution to higher education in the
Metropolitan region, through teaching, scholarship, and
participation in University affairs.
The award is provided by the President of the University, and
the recipient receives a $2,500 award and a commemorative silver
Madam President, I present to you this year's recipient of the
President's Distinguished Service Award,
Dr Timothy Sullivan.
>>President Loeschke: It is such an honor, as a president, to be
able to recognize a faculty member of this caliber.
Dr Sullivan, you are one of this institution's finest examples of
excellence and leadership.
Your remarkable record of service, the breadth of your
contributions campus-wide, and the respect you have earned from
your colleagues make you a natural choice for this
Since your arrival at Towson, more than 23 years ago, you have
devoted untold hours in service to students and faculty and
As a professor, and economist, you have diligently served as
chair of the Department of Economics in the College of
Business and Economics since 2007.
With eight consecutive terms as president of the University
Senate, you currently hold the institution's record for the
longest tenure in that leadership position.
The students have recognized your omnipresence.
In 2011, the Student Government Association named you the
faculty member of the year for your tireless commitment to
Your professionalism and combined with your desire and a
gift to find consensus has led repeated recruitment of you for
committees and for search committees.
You have been instrumental in the roles in a number of search
committees, most especially, recently, for our new Provost,
Dr Timothy Chandler.
As the faculty representative on the Board of Visitors, as well
as the Resource Planning Advisory Committee, and many,
many other campus governance bodies, you consistently
contribute academic perspective, excellence, wide ranging
knowledge, and sound judgment.
Tim, you are indeed the epitome of leadership with your
diplomacy and the gold standard of institutional service.
We ask our students all the time how they are going to serve with
their education and you are a role model for them all.
It is with the greatest pride, pleasure, and gratitude for all
that you do, that I present you with the 2013 Presidents Award
for Distinguished Service to this University.
>>Dr Sullivan: Thank you, President Loeschke, for those
very kind words.
I'm deeply honored and humbled to have been named the latest
recipient of the President's Award for Distinguished Service
to the University, an award that means more to me than I fear my
words here today can adequately express.
I'm honored to have my name now listed alongside the previous 32
recipients of this award, individuals that have all helped
to make this great university a great institution of higher
I'm honored to be part of an institution whose mission is to
enhance and enrich the lives of individuals, and more broadly,
to improve the human condition.
There are a great many faculty-staff across this
campus, many of whom are on this stage and in this auditorium
today, and which I have the greatest respect and admiration
for, and I am grateful to work alongside them, as a colleague,
in the pursuit of our common mission and vision.
As an educational institution,
we will ultimately and
appropriately be judged by the achievement of our students.
So, to all of you here today about to graduate, I offer you
not only my congratulations and best wishes, but I am confident
you will do us all proud.
In my view, there is nothing more vital to humanity than to
progress, than being part of something, to participate in
causes and events that are bigger than yourself.
This, of course, manifests itself in a variety of ways, in
families as well as in vocations.
I had the great, good fortune of being born into a large, loving
and dynamic family.
I also benefited from the commitment of many wonderful
The debt I owe to my teachers, to my mother, to my father, and
my seven brothers and sisters remains beyond estimation, even
to an economist.
As a member of an educational institution, this educational
institution, I believe I am also part of a larger, albeit,
metaphorical, family.
A significantly large selection of diverse and talented
individuals involved in something quite wonderful,
education and discovery.
To paraphrase, and somewhat distort the great American
playwright Tennessee Williams, "It has not been the kindness of
strangers that I have depended upon, but rather I've always
relied upon the dedication and good work of colleagues".
Even more significantly, I have certainly depended upon the
patience and supportive friends and loved ones.
Most notably, upon the support and patience of Cindy, my loving
and forgiving bride and love this many years.
To all of you, I am very grateful for this recognition,
for all that I've been given over the years and since our
journey is far from complete, I look forward to what lies ahead
for all of us.
Thank you.
>>President Loeschke: Commencement is one of the
happiest days of the year on this campus, and there are many
people here who are a part of your accomplishments, students.
There is, in particular, one very special group, whose
contributions deserve our attention.
We have one of the finest graduating classes in Maryland
because we have one of the finest faculty assembled,
So, I'm going to ask our faculty to please stand, and students, I
would like you to tell them what you think.
Faculty, please rise.
>>President Loeschke: Okay.
Also joining me on stage today are leaders of the University,
those responsible for facilitating our academic and
student programs, and though their dedication and expertise
enables the success of our students, you may not see them
each and every day.
Although, you can be assured, that each and every day they are
dedicated to your success.
Now, I'm going to ask these individuals to rise, and you can
hold your applause until the end.

colleges, and the Dean of University Libraries, the
associate deans of the colleges, members of the Board of
Visitors, the Board of Regents, the Alumni Association, the

Please join me in a round of applause, thanking them.
>>President Loeschke: I'd also like to thank the faculty
members who are serving as faculty marshals today, student
marshals, and readers for this ceremony.
A lot of time goes into that to make this special for you.
In addition to the faculty, there are over a hundred people
who have worked to put on this ceremony.
The Commencement Committee, the University Store, Students
Auxiliary Services, facilities, personnel, police, bus drivers,
food-service, photographers, events staff, custodians,
parking staff, and many volunteers.
I mention all of this because we love doing it.
It's a happy day for us.
A lot of people worked on this, and they do it out of love.
Let's thank them too, please.
>>President Loeschke: Now graduates, you've had a lot of
support on this journey.
First of all, and if I may have the lights up, I'm going to ask,
we're just going to take a moment here.
And we're going to ask all of the mothers and fathers of these
graduates to please stand up.
>>President Loeschke: Let these folks thank you.
>>President Loeschke: Now, now, we're going to hold our applause
until the end cause there's a bunch of you supporting
So now, we're going to ask brothers, as I call it, you
stand up.
We have any brothers or sisters, spouses, significant others,
partners, sons, and daughters?

you would.
I want to ask graduates that sometime this weekend, after the
Ravens game of course, that you sit, graduates, please, that you
sit quietly, just for a few minutes and reflect, and ask
yourselves how the world is going to be different, how is it
going to be better, because you have gotten this education?
How are you going to use it to make positive change in your
professions, in your families, in your communities, in the
state, the country, and the world?
This uncertain world needs you; it needs your leadership, your
passion, your vision, and your commitment.
As your president, and as someone who sat in a Towson
commencement as a new graduate like yourselves, many, many
years ago, just as you are now, I send you forward with pride
and respect and gratitude and love for all you have given to
Thank you.

Class of 2012.
Now, go celebrate.
