Bush School Graduate Certificate Ceremony

On May 8, graduate certificates were awarded to Bush School students who completed a certificate program. The ceremony was held in the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library’s Orientation Theater.

Some 115 students earned certificates during the summer and fall of 2013 and the spring of 2014 semesters. While some studied on campus, others were located across the United States and in other countries. Twenty-five students were present for the event.

Lisa Brown, director of extended education, presided at the ceremony; and Dean Ryan Crocker welcomed the graduates. Sixty-seven Certificates in Advanced International Affairs were presented by Ronald Sievert, director of that program. Dr. Danny Davis, director of the Certificate in Homeland Security program, presented certificates to fourteen graduates; and Dr. Will Brown awarded certificates to thirty-four students who earned the Certificate in Nonprofit Management.

Dr. Arnold Vedlitz, executive associate dean, introduced the class speaker, Matthew D Miller, emergency management specialist for the Dallas/Ft.Worth International Airport Department of Public Safety, who earned a Certificate in Homeland Security.

“These certificate programs enable both on-campus students and working professionals located away from College Station to gain additional expertise in their chosen field,” said Lisa Brown. “We’ve seen steady growth in both residential and online certificate enrollment and are pleased to recognize these outstanding graduates,” she added.
