319 Students to Graduate Thursday
at Owens Fall Commencement

Owens Community College will graduate 319 students - including 41 from the Findlay Campus - at the 22nd annual Fall Commencement Thursday, December 21 at 7 p.m. on the Toledo-area Campus, Oregon Road.

Maureen Fagans, an Architectural Construction Major from Maumee, has been selected to represent the Fall 2000 class and she will speak during the ceremony.

Fagans has a 3.89 grade point average and is the president of Tau Alpha Pi, an engineering honorary society. She is a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and former PTO president at Fairfield Elementary School in Maumee.

She plans to continue her education at the University of Toledo to obtain a bachelor's degree in engineering. The focus of her commencement address will be to "continue encouraging others to learn, whether in school, in business or the community."

There will be 73 students graduating with honors, as well as five graduates with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. Also, there will be 58 graduates in the Arts & Sciences division, which offers the first two years of a bachelor's degree.

This will be the first commencement in the new $9.3 million Student Health & Activities Center at Owens. Commencement is open to the public and the media.
