On a day devoted to honoring the McNair Scholars at Bloomfield College, the program welcomed Carl McNair, the brother of the man for whom the program is named and the president and CEO of McNair Achievement Programs, LLC and Founder of the Dr. Ronald E. McNair Foundation.
Bloomfield College graduated 266 students, making history with eight of those graduating with a Master of Science in Accounting, the College’s first master’s program. The rain held off until most were under the tent erected on the Quad and the ceremony was punctuated with sounds of thunder, although it hardly damped the spirits of the 266 graduates and their families and friends.
Four distinguished individuals will be receiving honorary doctor of laws degrees at the May Commencement ceremonies of Bloomfield College.
In an event that is becoming an annual celebration, the Korean students from the ITPS division hosted a festival on the Quad that included authentic foods, a mock wedding ceremony, traditional Korean dances, games, contemporary music sung in both Korean and English, and calligraphy.
