Bright blue skies and wide open futures greeted the more than 300 members of the School of Journalism and Communication class of 2010 at the school’s 94th commencement ceremony on Monday, June 14.

Ceremonies returned to the South Lawn of the Knight Library this year after being held in McArthur Court for the past two years. Glenn Cole ’92 inspired the graduates with tales of his misadventures in snowboarding and a message: “We are surrounded by constant change and uncertainty. You can fear it or you can embrace it. If you embrace it, not only will your life be more fun, but your career will also be more rewarding.”

A number of awards were presented at the ceremony, including the Marshall Award for Innovative Teaching to Professor Kim Sheehan and the Outstanding Adjunct Teaching Award to Melissa Hart.

On Sunday, SOJC award winners, Kappa Tau Alpha Inductees, and the SOJC’s Signature Scholarship winners were recognized at the third annual SOJC Student Recognition event.
