Tap, tap, tap. (Is this thing on?) Ahem. Graduates, parents, faculty, staff, friends: Here’s what’s happening and who’s speaking at various graduation events and ceremonies.

Carol J. Vogler '80, '86 will speak at Baccalaureate.• Rev. Carol J. Vogler ’80, ’86, of the Moravian Church in Canada speaks on “A Passion for the Possible” at Baccalaureate, 5:30 p.m. Friday, May 17, Central Moravian Church. Vogler is an old friend of chaplain David Bennett ’88, who said: “She works extensively in the creation, coordination, and administration of inner-city service agencies such as AIDS networks, food banks, and the Hope Foundation.” Vogler recently completed her doctorate in human ecology at the University of Alberta.

• At Commencement, 10:00 a.m. Saturday, May 18, on the Quad, the faculty speaker will be Steve R. Gordy, professor and chair of the religion department.

The undergraduate student speaker will be Kevin Bush ’02,East Stroudsburg, who will graduate with a B.A. in social science education. Vice president of the Class of 2002, he has been on the Dean’s List and selected for membership in Kappa Delta Pi, the international education honor society. He also was captain of the men’s track and field team this year and was named MAC indoor track and field Athlete of the Year 2002.

The senior class speaker was to have been Allen Frank ’02, but he has a “once in a lifetime” opportunity to join the national road company of Blast!, which has been described as the marching band version of Stomp. He’s been asked to start earlier in May than he’d planned—and as jobs for tuba players aren’t all that easy to come by, he’s taking it.

Norman O’Shaughnessy ’02, Easton, who will receive the Master of Business Administration, will be the graduate student speaker.
