Technology entrepreneur and Clark School Board of Visitors Director Tom Scholl served as commencement speaker and electrical engineering major Harneet Singh Khurana served as student speaker.

Scholl encouraged the graduates to find mentors, to learn about finances and to think big. The text of his speech is available online.

Also at the ceremony, winners of the Clark School's E. Robert Kent Outstanding Teaching Award for Junior Faculty and Outstanding Staff Service Award were announced.

Assistant Professor Thomas E. Murphy, electrical and computer engineering, was presented with the junior faculty award. He was honored for his passion for education, versatility as an instructor and the supportive environment he creates in the classroom.

ECE alumnus George Syrmos, executive director of the Clark School's Office of Advanced Engineering Education, received the staff service award for his enthusiastic leadership of the program and the support he provides elsewhere throughout the Clark School to students, faculty, staff and alumni.
