Graduates Lauded for Completing Educational Journey

May 27, 2014

Several hundred graduates, family, and friends gathered at the Mark V reception hall in Pikeville, Kentucky, to honor the Class of 2014 of the Pikeville Campus on Friday, May 9th.

Pike County Chief Circuit Judge Eddy Coleman was the commencement speaker.  Judge Coleman congratulated the graduates for demonstrating the kind of initiative and leadership the community needed in order to continue to make positive progress for all of its citizens.

Awards were presented to a number of graduates, including Clinton Stump, Achievement Award; Samantha Stacy, Leadership Award; Melissa Newsome, E.M. Coulter Award; Ashley Burgess, Mary P. McGurn Award; and Gary Yates, Joseph E. Hurn Award.

Glenn Spradlin II, distribution manager for Coca-Cola Refreshment, was inducted into the Alumni Hall of Achievement.  A 1998 graduate with an associate’s degree in business administration—management (minor in accounting), Glen has risen through a series of progressively more responsible positions in management, sales, and logistics; he currently manages deliveries for approximately 1800 Coca-Cola customers in a 15-county area of eastern Kentucky.

A-Campus director Tammy Riley is pictured with phlebotomy graduate Clinton Stump.  “He lost his job in the coal mining industry and came back to school which took a huge leap of faith on his end,” said campus director Tammy Riley.  “I am very proud of him.  This meant a lot to his entire family.  He also received the Achievement Award.”
