“It's about service, Christian service,” President Michael V. carter told the students, "Each of you has chosen a career in service and we are very proud of you.” He said the three degree-completion programs offered in Somerset -- social work, criminal justice and early childhood education -- are service professions, all about helping others in their lives as Christian servant leaders.

Joining Dr. Carter on the program were Dr. Keith Spears, vice president for regional and professional education; Anne Adcock, Noe Center site director; the Rev. Donavon Burton, senior pastor of Beacon Hill Baptist Church; Dr. Frank Cheatham, senior vice president for academic affairs; Dr. DeWayne Frazier, associate Vice President for Academic Affairs; and Paula Smith, CU director of alumni relations.

Three special awards were presented by Dr. spears, “the Key Award in recognition of the key people who have brought CU Somerset to the forefront in establishing degree-completion and other baccalaureate programs to Somerset and Pulaski County.” Recipients of the awards were Roger Hollars, professor at Somerset Community College; CU alumna Cindy Dishman, MSW; and Dr. Cheatham.
