some definite changes, including brand
new housing for students. These excep

Pomp and Circumstance
by Vivian Rivers
As a former graduate of Brevard College, I know first hand what it is
like to walk down the sidewalk under the Bell Tower on the way to receiving my
first college degree. The jitters in the stomach are still there when I thmlf about
strolling across the stage and out of Brevard in to another school and another
town. This year, the jitters will be the same for these graduates just as they were
According to Ray Fisher, the guest speaker for this year’s graduation
will be Dr. Michael Mahoney from Princeton University and associate of Dr.
Don Scarborough. There will be approximately one hundred graduates; the num
bers will probably change after exams and grades come in for the semester. The
degrees that will be given out this year are the Associate of Fine Arts, Associate
of Arts, Associate of Science, Junior College Diploma, Bachelor of Fine Arts in
Music and Art, and for the first time in the school’s history, Bachelor of Arts in
Environmental Studies. In the near future, Brevard hopes to have graduates with
BA’s in Enghsh, Interdisciplinary Studies, Wilderness Education, History, and
many others added to the ciurent hst.
As the graduates put on their caps and gowns this year and line up to
take that anticipated joumey, I, along with many other former graduates, still
take that walk with them in our minds. It is an accomphshment that deserves
recognition. The entire staff of the Clarion would like to say, “Congratulations!”
to all die graduates for a hard job well done and wish them the best of luck in the
future whether it be here at Brevard or at another institution!
