In addition to completing their degree requirements, many 2012 Bush School graduates also chose to pursue one or more special certificates offered by the School. Those who completed the requirements for the various certificates were recognized at a luncheon on April 30.
Forty-one students received the Dean’s Leadership Certificates, which were presented by Acting Dean Andy Card; Dr. Joe Cerami, Director of the Public Service Leadership Program; and Holly Kasperbauer, Assistant Director. Thirty-one students received the Writing Portfolio Certificate, which is awarded to students who elect to develop a writing portfolio in addition to their degree program requirements. With the help of the Bush School’s writing consultant, Sally Wade, students submit and refine two or more writing selections for their portfolio.
“Taking on this additional work demonstrates again the commitment of our students to receive the most from their Bush School experience,” said Card. “The skills and knowledge they gained through these certificate programs will pay dividends throughout their careers,” he added.
