COLLEGE MARKS 39TH COMMENCEMENT


5/8/2004

Pittsburgh, PA -- Monsignor William Kerr, outgoing La Roche College president, presided over his final commencement at the college on Saturday, May 8. Kerr joined the college in conferring degrees upon 295 students at La Roche’s 39th annual commencement ceremony in the Kerr Fitness and Sports Center.

“It’s a good feeling to be graduating with you,” said Kerr as he addressed the graduates. “We know your dreams and aspirations. You shall indeed sail the seas of ambition. I pray that you will land on the shores of your success.”

Kerr, La Roche’s sixth president, tendered his resignation to the college’s Board of Trustees this past fall, informing them that he would not seek a third six-year term as president. His current term expires on June 30, 2004. He is leaving to become executive director of the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, D.C. Succeeding Kerr as president is Sr. Candace Introcaso, CDP, Ph.D., a member of the college’s Board of Trustees.

Keynote speaker for commencement was Mike Clark, news anchor for WTAE-TV, who received the degree of Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from Kerr. <
