Maysville Community and Technical College (MCTC) held its 44th commencement exercise Friday evening at Mason County High School Fieldhouse.
Dr. Ed Story, president, and Mr. Charlie Calvert, MCTC Board of Directors chair, welcomed those gathered to honor the graduates. The student address was given by Mr. George Shoemaker from the Licking Valley Campus in Cynthiana.
Dr. Story presented the Distinguished Service to Education Award to Nelson and Pauline Hester. In December 2011, Mr. and Mrs. Hester gave the Maysville Community and Technical College Foundation a gift to be endowed with income to provide scholarships and aid to Robertson County students with awards to be made based on financial need and merit. The impact of this gift is and will continue to be magnificent and far reaching. Robertson County School students graduating this year will be the first beneficiaries of the Hester's generosity.
The Distinguished Alumnus Award was presented to Marsha Story Carver, a member of the class of 1984. Mrs. Carver went on to earn a Bachelors Degree in Secondary Education Science from the University of Kentucky; a Masters of Arts in Education in Secondary School Counseling from Western Kentucky University; a Rank I Level I Principalship in School Administration and Leadership Supervision from Western Kentucky University; and Level II Educational Administration and Leadership Supervision also from Western Kentucky University. She began working in the public school system teaching science in 2004. In addition to her classroom work, she is a Science Consultant for AdvanceKentucky, working to expand access to and participation and success in rigorous college-level work in high school, particularly among underrepresented student populations. Mrs. Carver is also a National Trainer for Pre-AP curriculum for Laying the Foundation, a math and science initiative.
Following those recognitions, candidates were presented by Dr. Juston Pate, chief academic officers, and degrees conferred by Dr. Story.
