Congratulations to Linda Land, the Library's Administrative Services Coordinator, and the Outstanding Fall 2009 Graduate of her department, Management, Marketing, and Administrative Services (MMAS).
The honor as outstanding department graduate is based on grades and departmental activities and is selected by faculty. Each College of Business Administration's (COBA) department's honor graduate is then asked to write a speech and they "audition" in front of faculty from COBA. This group makes recommendations to the COBA dean on who should deliver the COBA speech at Commencement. Linda was selected for this distinction.
Linda's speech at the 11:30 AM Commencement ceremony on December 12 was about her 46-year road to completing her Bachelor's, and the fact that it's never too late to get a degree.
WAY TO GO Linda! The Dick Smith Library is proud of you!
