AASU to Hold Commencement Ceremony December 14

SAVANNAH, GA–– Armstrong Atlantic State University will hold a commencement ceremony on Saturday, December 14, for the more than 400 students who will graduate as part of the fall class of 2002. The ceremony will begin at 10:00 A.M. in AASU's Alumni Arena. The event is open to the public.

President Thomas Z. Jones will confer an Honorary Doctor of Letters on Robert A. Burnett, fifth president of Armstrong Atlantic State University, and his wife, Mary V. Burnett, in recognition of their nearly twenty-five years of dedicated service to the university and the Savannah community. It is the second such degree to be awarded in AASU's sixty-seven year history and is the highest honor the university can bestow upon someone.

Following will be a presentation of the Armstrong Atlantic faculty awards—the Award for Distinguished Service to the University; the Award for Distinguished Faculty Service to the Community; and the Alumni Service to the Discipline Award. The Dean Propst Award will be presented to a faculty member who has been outstanding in teaching and learning and has encouraged student involvement in academic, co-curricular, and leadership activities.

After the introduction of the deans of the colleges of arts and sciences, education, health professions, and the School of Graduate Studies, President Jones will award diplomas to the undergraduate and graduate degree candidates.
