Spring 2020 Virtual Commencement

 

Commencement Program

 

Transcript

Below is a transcript of the commencement ceremony.

Processional

Stage party enters to Pomp and Circumstance.

Proclamation

Ashley Chisolm, President of the Faculty Senate:

As President of the Mississippi University for Women Faculty Senate, I welcome you to the 135th Commencement Ceremony and hereby proclaim it officially convened.

As the mace has been a symbol of authority since the Middle Ages, the mace which I carry today is a symbol of this institution and bears the inscription: "We study for light to bless with light." The simple and direct message confirmed here is that as we become enlightened through our pursuits and gain knowledge, we will in turn use our understanding, knowledge, and ability to improve the world.

During the ceremony, the Mace will rest on the table at which John McCaleb Martin drafted the bill creating this institution 136 years ago to remind us of our accomplishments and our specific responsibility to “bless with light.”

Please stand for the National Anthem, previously recorded by the MUW Chamber Singers at the Spring 2019 Commencement ceremony.

National Anthem

Welcome

John Jacob Miller, President of the Student Government Association:

Graduates, Family, Honored Guests, all those gathered to celebrate,

On behalf of the student body of Mississippi University for Women I am proud to welcome you to celebrate your achievement. Despite the hardships, struggles, and public health crises you have endured. You have, with no small measure of work and sacrifice, achieved your goals. So, today we are gathered here, wherever we are, to celebrate you.

When preparing what to say for this unusual but no less sacred ceremony, I aspired of delivering grand words that would bring clarity and inspiration. Well, apologies to all who have attempted to teach me writing and English, I could not. When thinking of all the grand things to say, I could only find these three simple ideas: congratulations, persist, and thank you.

It bears repeating, congratulations! Graduates, you made it. You set your mind towards the goal of having this degree, and you made it. No one handed this to you. Your parents didn’t go to class for you. Your advisor didn’t make deals to pass you. You did it. You have earned your place in a legacy of leaders, artists, healers, and change-makers. But, you did not do it alone. So, Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, and all caregivers, congratulations! With every move-in day, bank transfer, and late night spent worrying at the dinner table you helped bring your graduate a little closer to this day. Graduates, while you wear the cap and gown, a community worked for it. So to you, and all those who were there with you along the way, congratulations!

Remember that your journey doesn’t end here. You have taken the first step on the path you are set upon. What you finish today, is only the beginning of what you are to become. Wherever you decide to go, you have been equipped with the knowledge, tools, and skills to succeed.

Now, it is up to you to decide how to use them. So, persist. Find what it is that inspires you, what drives you, and pursue it with your whole heart. I encourage you to remember your state, communities, and families. Your Mississippi needs you, and you always have a place here.
Thank you. Thank you for your hard work. Thank you graduates for the long sleepless nights and early mornings that went into today. Thank you family for the calls, time, and prayers that went into your graduate’s journey. Thank you to the University, faculty, staff, and alumni that has created a special home here for all of our graduates.

Congratulations for your achievement, persist to your goals, and never remember to say thank you. With a heart full of gratitude, I send you with the words of one of the greatest men I’ve ever known, my grandfather. “You can do a whole lot, when you just do what’s right”.

Welcome to the Long Blue Line!

Special Comments and Introduction of Stage Party

Nora Miller, President of Mississippi University for Women:

Thank you, John Jacob, for your remarks.

Today we honor our graduates as they join the Long Blue Line. The W was founded to provide educational opportunities to an underserved population. Today, The W is celebrated as a coeducational 21st Century university, grounded in and remaining true to the values of our founding. The W’s tradition of excellence is nationally recognized. U. S. News and World Report ranks The W as one of the top 20 public Southern regional universities and a best value. Washington Monthly has consistently ranked The W as a top master’s university, as well as a Best Bang for the Buck. We celebrate these recognitions, but the best and most enduring measures of this university are its graduates and the mark they will make on this state, this nation, and the world. Today, I want to invite you to pause and reflect on the great legacy of The W. I encourage you to look forward to what comes next for the university, but, most important, what comes next for the graduates we celebrate today.

We are grateful to the leaders of the state of Mississippi who support higher education: the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning, the Commissioner of Higher Education, our Governor, the state legislature, and to our alumni and friends.

I would like to introduce the members of the stage party. I will start with those on the front row and then the back. Please stand as I call your name.

Ashley Chisolm, President of Faculty Senate
Dr. Scott Tollison, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
John Jacob Miller, SGA President
Then on the back row:
Dr. Jennifer Miles, Vice President for Student Affairs
Dr. Marty Hatton, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Head of the Division of Education and Outreach
Dr. Tammie McCoy, Dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences
Dr. Marty Brock, Dean of the College of Business and Professional Studies
Dr. Brian Anderson, Dean of the College of Arts, Science and Education

The outstanding faculty and staff of The W are known and respected for their excellence and commitment to the success of our students. While they are not here with us physically, they are with us in spirit, celebrating this day. Today would not be possible for these graduates without the love, support, and funding provided by some other very important people. Today we also honor parents, spouses, grandparents, children, and other family and friends of today’s graduates.

As these graduates join the Long Blue Line, I would like to recognize our alumni. The women and men who have graduated from The W in every decade of our history are legendary for their dedication to this university. My fellow W alumni are here with us in spirit this day. Typically, our physical commencement ceremonies are dignified and (well, at least we attempt to) follow the appropriate protocol. The Class of 2020 is remarkable. You have finished your academic experience like no other class has, and the virtual ceremony will take whatever form you wish, wherever you are participating. While the stage party here will adhere to standard protocol, our graduates and their family and friends are encouraged to make all the joyful noise that you please. Your celebration will not interfere with that of the next person whose name will be called.

Dr. Miles, Mr. Miller and Dr. Tollison will come forward to make several special announcements.

Special Announcements

Dr. Jennifer Miles, Vice President for Student Affairs:

Unfortunately, we are not able to gather today for our traditional Magnolia Chain Ceremony, but we would like to make some special announcements that are normally made during that ceremony.

First, I am happy to recognize the members of the Class of 2020 selected Mr. and Ms. MUW and those selected to be in the The W Hall of Fame. Selected by their fellow classmates, these students have been actively involved on campus throughout their time here and are known to exemplify the truest spirit of The W. Mr. MUW is John Jacob Miller, and Ms. MUW is Katie Ballinger. Those selected for Hall of Fame are Victoria Bailey, Keyarra Blakeney, Morgan Dennis, Tsering Gurung, Thomas Kennedy, Francisco Lopes, Recious Miller, and Walker Winter. Congratulations to each of you for receiving this distinguished honor!

I would now like to present an award to the social club with the highest GPA. The W’s Interclub Council is comprised of seven 4-year social clubs. Life-long bonds, fun, and friendship may be what draws most people into the social club experience, but The W’s Interclub also encourages and strives for academic success. The 2020 social club with the highest average is the Lockheart Social Club. Congratulations!

The W SPIRIT Award is given each year to the W student who exhibits the true spirit of the University. Students who receive this award must demonstrate a positive spirit for The W, contribute to university-wide activities, serve and participate on campus, promote The W, and maintain at least a "C" average and are nominated by the academic colleges. The winner of the 2020 The W SPIRIT Award is Mary Grace Prine. Congratulations!

John Jacob Miller, President of the Student Government Association:

On behalf of the Class of 2020, I would like to present a check in the amount of $2,500 as our class gift for a garden statue of an owl. President Miller, would you please accept this gift to the university that has given us so much?

President Nora Miller:

On behalf of the university, I am delighted to accept this check for $2,500 for an owl statue. It will symbolize the impact that your class has made on campus, and future students and guests will know of the legacy you leave behind. Again, thank you to the 2020 Senior Class.

Dr. Tollison will now come forward to make another special recognition.

Dr. Scott Tollison, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs:

Emeritus status is a high honor which may be conferred upon a faculty member who is retiring after a lengthy career of distinguished service at MUW. We have four retiring faculty members we would like to recognize for this accomplishment.

Robert Gibson is Professor Emeritus of Art. He has served on the MUW faculty since 1989. Congratulations Mr. Gibson!

Dr. Bryan Hilliard is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy. He has served on the MUW faculty since 2005. Congratulations Dr. Hilliard!

Dr. Cathy Smith is Associate Professor Emeritus of Nursing. She has served on the MUW faculty since 2004. Congratulations Ms. Smith!

Dr. Bridget Smith-Pieschel is Professor Emeritus of English and Women’s Studies. She has served on the MUW faculty since 1983. Congratulations Dr. Pieschel!

Let’s all give a round of applause for these four new emeriti faculty members.

Graduates who have successfully completed the requirements of the Ina E. Gordy Honors College, including a senior independent research project in their major area of study, will be recognized by our Deans.

As our Deans recognize our graduates, you will hear terms such as summa cum laude, magna cum laude and cum laude. This recognition is reserved for those who currently have at least a 3.5 MUW and cumulative grade point average on their undergraduate academic work for their first baccalaureate degree.

Congratulations to all of our honor graduates.

Conferring of Degrees

Dr. Scott Tollison:

Wherever you are, would all candidates for a degree please stand? President Miller, I am honored to present the members of the graduating class.

President Nora Miller:

Thank you, Dr. Tollison.

By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning in Mississippi, I confer upon you the degree for which you have qualified with all the rights and privileges appertaining thereto.

Will the candidates please be seated?

Dr. Scott Tollison:

All graduates, please stand. At this time, I present the most recent graduates of MUW. Representing the senior class, SGA President John Jacob Miller will now move his tassel from the right side of his mortar board to the left. This symbolizes your entry into a new phase of your lives. Welcome to the Long Blue Line!

Concluding Remarks

President Nora Miller:

Congratulations to our graduates!

Welcome to the Long Blue Line! As a fellow member of this Long Blue Line, I am thankful for the opportunities that my education provided me, and thankful for the faculty and staff who prepared me for my career and for my service to the community.

I am pleased to announce that our alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the University have made contributions to the MUW Foundation to honor this class of graduates with a special graduation pack that will be sent to you later this summer. We hope that many of you will be able to join us August 1st for an in-person celebration, subject to CDC guidance in place at that time.

With the conferral of degrees, you were reminded that they are associated with rights, responsibilities and privileges. You are responsible for making good use of the education you received here. I hope you use your education and enthusiasm to make this a better world.

You’ve been given great advice and messages for further reflection from John Jacob Miller.

The themes that I’ve set for my presidency are well suited to our current world order - Adaptability, Positivity, and Responsibility. Adapt to changing circumstances. When something doesn’t turn out the way you wanted it to, realize that doors to new opportunities have been opened for you. Take responsibility for continuing your education throughout your life. Ask questions if you don’t understand something, admit when you have made a mistake, and admit when you need help. That’s a sign of self-awareness and strength, not weakness.

I encourage you to stay in touch with us. When you realize something you have learned here has made a critical difference in your life, take the time to reach out to that professor or mentor and let them know. Support your alma mater with gifts of your talents, time, and resources. Help us identify future students. You are our ambassadors and light to the world.

And now, in this moment, the torch is being passed to you.

Go forth – and bless by light!

Today is a beginning, your commencement. We celebrate with you the new and unknown opportunities and successes yet to come. We expect great things from you and for you. And we hope you will “pay it forward” for those who will come after you. We express to you our gratitude and love, for your presence here has made us all the richer.

Let us stand and sing together our Alma Mater, previously recorded by music education major Kyia King at the December 2019 Commencement Ceremony.

Alma Mater

Serene as the dawning
Your promise now unfolds
To new heights of wisdom
Proclaiming truth foretold
With courage undaunted
Honor the challenge,
Guiding your purpose bold.
Sing praise to our great Alma Mater,
Oh, sing and cherish your mem'ries forever.
Profound our allegiance;
Secure our belief in God.
This creed of our heritage
Illumines the path untrod.
