May 13: Baccalaureate ceremony

FREDERICK, Md.—Hood College’s traditional Baccalaureate ceremony is scheduled for May 13 at 6 p.m. in Coffman Chapel.

Readings from religious and spiritual traditions will be presented by Class of 2016 members Joseph Denicola, Lamia Jenkins, Shannon McHale, Shannon Oliver, Elizabeth Palena, Tamara Schlossenberg and Mareca Williams.

Paige Eager, Ph.D., associate professor of political science at Hood, will be the speaker. Graduating seniors Nathaniel Leighton, Erin Murray and Curtis Stubbs will share class memories. During the Ceremony of Light, 2016 Class President Maya Gonzalez will share a candle flame to “pass the torch” to 2017 Class President BJ Daisey.

Currently, she is chair of the political science department, program director of the global studies major and a co-faculty adviser for the Model United Nations program. She is the author of three books: “Global Population Policy: From Population Control to Reproductive Rights,” “From Freedom Fighters to Terrorists: Women and Political Violence” and “Waging Gendered Wars: U.S. Military Women in Afghanistan and Iraq.”
