Former Dean Returns to Deliver Commencement Address

Judy Coen, former dean, department chair and faculty member at Carroll Community College, will present the Commencement Address at the May 29, 2013 ceremony at McDaniel College.

“I had the wonderful opportunity during my years at Carroll Community College to facilitate the efforts of a great faculty and staff so that they could fulfill the needs of the college and community,” said Coen.

“I plan to share many memories of this great college. I hope to motivate graduates to chart a course for success in their future endeavors.”

“I am pleased that Judy accepted my invitation to be Commencement speaker this year,” said College President Dr. Faye Pappalardo. “Judy brings a wealth of insight into the history of the college. I expect her remarks to be as inspiring as her teaching was here at Carroll.”

Coen served as dean of the Division of Business, Mathematics and Sciences at Carroll from 2007 to 2010.

She made a number of presentations at local, regional and national conventions, which focused on the innovative use of technology and on teaching pedagogies.
