Kaplan University-Hagerstown held its fall 2012 commencement ceremony Oct. 7 at North Hagerstown High School.

There were 206 students in the graduating class. Seven faculty members and administrative staff members from the Hagerstown campus received degrees.

W. Christopher Motz, president of the Maryland campuses, called the commencement a celebration of the “culmination of a significant achievement in the life of an individual, the earning of an academic credential.” 

Student speaker Aaron Richards emphasized valuing family while balancing a career.  Richards, who received his bachelor’s degree in information technology, joined his daughter, Kayla Richards, who received her bachelor’s degree in business administration. 

Student speaker Debra Stottlemyer, a 1982 graduate of Hagerstown Business College, chose Kaplan University because she knew she would get “the individual assistance” she desired “in a professional environment.” Stottlemyer received her degree in medical office management.
