As May Keynote
BY MELISSA MILIOS
Johimetta Cole, president of Spelman College, will speak May
14 at the University’s 194th Commencement.
A committee chaired by James Peacock, professor of anthro
pology, selected Cole as the keynote speaker last week. The
committee was made up of administrators, faculty and members of
the senior class government.
Peacock, who suggested Cole as Commencement speaker, said
that she had been the committee's first choice.
“I think that people who go (to the Commencement) will be
amazed at the excitement of Johnnetta Cole’s speaking, ” Peacock
“I think she will be remembered as one of the greatest speakers
at a Carolina commencement.”
Peacock said he recommended Cole with
firsthand knowledge of her abilities as a
“Two years ago, I heard her speak in
Washington, D.C., and it was one of the
most inspirational speeches I have ever
heard, not only in what she said but in how
she said it,” Peacock said.
Peacock also praised Cole for her achieve
“She is a role model for women and for
minorities,” he said.
“I think that (Cole) represents the future
and values of (these groups) better than
anyone I could have recommended,” Pea
Senior Class Vice President Parshant Dhiman, who was also on
the committee, said the committee had tried to come up with a
dynamic speaker who would represent the University community
as a whole.
“We’re really glad that a person of her caliber is coming in to
open up the third century of Carolina tradition,” Dhiman said.
“We feel she will break the mold and be very dynamic in her
Chancellor Paul Hardin, who will deliver his last Commence
ment address as chancellor in May, said he was excited that Cole
was finally available to speak at UNC’s commencement.
“(Dr. Cole) was speaking at Harvard on the same date as our
commencement last year, so we couldn’t get her then; we’re
delighted she’s coming now,” Hardin said.
Hardin also said Cole’s ability was demonstrated through her
“(She is a) marvelous person,” he said.
“She has 30 honorary degrees and has done a wonderful job at
Spelman College as the first African-American woman to head
that particular school.”
Cole was inaugurated as the seventh president of Spelman
College, a historically black women’s college, in 1987.
Since her arrival, the college has risen to become the first
historically black college to receive a No. 1 rating fromU.S. News
& World Report. Spelman earned the No. 1 rating for a regional
liberal arts college in the South in the magazine’s 1992 “Best
College Buys" issue.
In the same year, Cole was named to President-elect Bill
Clinton’s Transition Team as Ouster Coordinator for Education,
Labor, and the Arts and Humanities.
She presently is serving as the chairwoman of the presidents of
the 41 member institutions of the United Negro College Fund.
At age 15, Cole enrolled in an early admissions program at Fisk
University. She completed her undergraduate education at Oberlin
College and earned her master’s and doctoral degrees in anthro
pology from Northwestern University.
Cole began her teaching career at Washington State University,
where she was named outstanding faculty member of the year
She has also taught at the University of Massachusetts at
