HISTORY Founded in the summer of 1927, Bishop State Community College was originally the Mobile Branch of Alabama State College (University) in Montgomery, Alabama. It was established as an in-service arm of Alabama State College that offered extension courses to African-American elementary and secondary teachers in Mobile. In 1936, O. H. Johnson was appointed as dean. The first full-time faculty consisted of seven persons, which included such Mobile pioneers in education as Dr. Benjamin F. Baker, Mary Wilbur Weeks Burroughs, and C.F. Powell. Dr. Sanford D. Bishop, Sr., joined the teaching staff of “The Branch” in 1938 as an instructor of English and music. In 1941, he was named dean. In 1942, property was acquired on Broad Street where the present Main Campus is located. The campus consisted of a two-story framed building, which prior to the purchase of the property, was used by the Voluntary Fire Fighters Society #11. It was purchased with a loan that was later repaid by students through fund-raisings. The first permanent structure on the campus was constructed in 1954. In 1963, the name “Mobile Branch of Alabama State College” was changed to Alabama State College – Mobile Center. In 1965, the Alabama State Legislature ratified the Alabama State Board of Education’s action establishing the Alabama State College – Mobile Center as Mobile State Junior College and severed its relationship with Alabama State College in Montgomery. Dr. Bishop was appointed president of the new independent junior College. In 1971, the Alabama State Legislature renamed the College to S. D. Bishop State Junior College. Upon the death of Dr. Bishop on June 21, 1981, Dr. Joseph Christopher Mitchell, Sr., was selected to serve as interim president. In September 1981, Dr. Yvonne Kennedy was appointed as the second president. On February 23, 1989, the Alabama State Board of Education re-named the College to Bishop State Community College to reflect its growth in vocational/career offerings, transfer offerings, and community service activities. On August 22, 1991, the Alabama State Board of Education consolidated two technical colleges in Mobile – Southwest State Technical College and Carver State Technical College – with Bishop State Community College. Southwest State Technical College, now the Southwest Campus of Bishop State Community College, was established to provide postsecondary vocational training in the Mobile area under the 1947 Regional Trade School Act. The city of Mobile provided the 26 acres of land for the campus. The first graduates, in 1954, were 15 members of a practical nurse program who had begun classes in January 1953. The College officially opened in May 1954 with an enrollment of 100 students in eight programs. Carver State Technical College, now the Carver Campus of Bishop State Community College, was authorized on January 1, 1962, by the Alabama State Legislature. It was constructed in 1962 in the Toulminville area of Mobile. On November 19, 1976, the Alabama State Board of Education approved changing the name of Carver State Technical Trade School to Carver State Technical Institute and later to Carver State Technical College. In 1995, the College added an extension to the Main Campus with the opening of the Baker-Gaines Central site. This site was formerly the historic Central High School. The facility houses the Division of Health Related Professions. In addition, it includes a museum, child care center, 1,200-seat auditorium, multimedia center and a bookstore. Dr. Kennedy was president for 26 years, retiring on July 30, 2007. James Lowe became the interim president on August 1, 2007, and on May 22, 2008, the Alabama State Board of Education appointed him president.

ACADEMIC REGALIA The history of academic attire for occasions such as a commencement exercise dates back to the 14th Century. The associate is the first post secondary education degree. The names of each of the three academic degrees that are generally recognized seem to have been determined by the medieval university custom. The bachelor’s degree takes its name directly from the medieval practice of “bachelors” wearing a garland of bayberries. The master’s degree was equivalent to a license to teach and sometimes was followed by the expression Licentia Docendi. The doctor’s degree was originally a title of respect and a recognition of great learning. In the medieval university, students and teachers wore gowns indicating their status and scholastic achievement. The academic regalia worn by those participating in today’s commencement ceremonies evolved from the medieval costume. Distinctions among the costumes indicate the type of degree held by the wearer. A gown worn fastened at the top and featuring open sleeves is worn by those members of the faculty and staff holding the bachelor’s degree. The master’s gown, which is worn open, has long pointed closed sleeves with a slit near the upper part of the arm. The doctor’s gown, also worn open, is faced with a broad strip of velvet and has cross bars of velvet on each sleeve. These distinctions also may be seen among students at colleges and universities that offer bachelor and graduate-level degrees. Hoods are worn by those members of the faculty and staff holding graduate degrees. The doctor’s hood is longer and more elaborate than the master’s hood. A college faculty or staff member who holds a degree from another college or university wears the colors of his or her alma mater. The color of the velvet edging on the hood indicates the field of study in which the degree was earned, for example: Arts - WHITE; Fine Arts - BROWN; Science - GOLDEN YELLOW; Education - LIGHT BLUE; Music - PINK; Library Science - LEMON YELLOW; Social Work - CITRON; Business - SAPPHIRE BLUE; Law - PURPLE; Nursing - APRICOT. There are very few distinctions in the regalia for students graduating on the associate-degree level. The robes for students graduating with an associate degree are the same kind of robes as those used by students graduating on the baccalaureate level. At Bishop State Community College, honor candidates for de5 grees wear gold tassels to represent their academic achievement.

HONOR GRADUATES Honor graduates are denoted in the program by the following notations: Graduation Honors for Degrees *** Summa Cum Laude - 3.90 to 4.00 GPA ** Magna Cum Laude - 3.70 to 3.89 GPA * Cum Laude - 3.50 to 3.69 GPA Graduation Honors for Certificate Programs + Graduating with Distinction - 3.50 to 4.00 GPA

THE GRADUATE'S PLEDGE With a solemn sense of responsibility, I pledge myself; TO HOLD MY DEGREE AS A SACRED TRUST, WITH UNTARNISHED HONOR TO MYSELF, IN GENEROUS LOYALTY TO MY ALMA MATER AND WITH FIDELITY TO MY COUNTRY, MY FELLOWMAN, AND MY GOD.

Commencement Speaker ROD RISLEY, PH.D. Executive Director of Phi Theta Kappa Bishop State Community College is pleased to present Dr. Rod Risley, the Executive Director of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), as its 2014 Spring Commencement speaker. Risley joined the staff of the largest honor society in higher education in 1977 as Director of Alumni Affairs and in 1985 was elected the society’s only second Executive Director since its founding in 1918. Risley is a graduate of San Jacinto College in Texas, where he was elected Phi Theta Kappa National President in 1974. When Risley took the reins, Phi Theta Kappa had 500 chapters in 48 states, and 25,000 students were inducted annually. The operating budget for the organization was $500,000, with a staff of five. Today, there are more than 1,280 chapters in the United States, U.S. Territories, and eight sovereign nations inducting more than 135,000 students annually. Nearly 2.5 million students have been inducted into Phi Theta Kappa, 70% of those during Risley’s tenure. The Society’s annual budget now exceeds $16 million, with a staff of 70, operating from its International Headquarters, The Center for Excellence in Jackson, Mississippi. Risley’s vision has led to the creation of many innovative and award-winning programs including the Leadership Development Studies Program taught in 400 colleges; CollegeFish.org, the Gates Foundation funded web-based platform to help all community college students plan for degree completion and transfer to senior colleges; and The Competitive Edge, an innovative personal and professional development program for members. He has forged notable partnerships with USA TODAY, the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Under Risley’s leadership, nearly 750 senior colleges have designated $37 million in transfer scholarships exclusively for Phi Theta Kappa members, including many Ivy league schools. In 2010, Risley, along with CEOs from the five leading national organizations in the community college arena – American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), Association of Community College Trustees, National Institute for Staff and Organization Development, Center for Community College Student Engagement, and the League for Innovation, made history by collectively signing an agreement, Democracy’s Colleges: A Call to Action, committing to increase the number of community college students completing a degree or credential by five million by 2020. Risley conceived the development of C4 – The Community College Completion Corps – students helping students complete college and participated in the first ever White House Summit on Community Colleges. Since then, he has presented at numerous conferences throughout the U.S, Canada, England, and the Caribbean on the importance of credential and degree completion. Risley recently served on the 21st Century National Commission on the Future of Community Colleges, which issued its landmark report, Reclaiming the American Dream. He now serves on the Steering Committee for the 21st Century Initiative Implementation Team, in addition to serving as Co-chair and member respectively of the “Faculty Engagement,” “Leadership Development” and “Community College Completion Commitment” implementation teams. He serves on the AACC Commission for Academic and Student Development and is a recipient of AACC’s Distinguished Alumnus and National Leadership Awards. Risley served two terms as Chairman of the Mississippi Humanities Council. In 2013, he was appointed to serve a three-year term on the National Advisory Board for the Center for Community College Student Engagement. Risley earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Sam Houston State University, a Master of Business Administration degree from Millsaps College, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Mississippi State University, and has been awarded numerous honorary degrees.

THE ALMA MATER To you Bishop State we sing, Of mem'ries you'll always bring, Two years of our lives enriched by thee, Successful we must be. Among our peers we shall stand, In colleges thru out the land. The Old Gold and Green, we love so true, We'll always think of you. When school days have passed and gone, Fond mem'ries will linger on. In work we pursue, in all else we do, We'll give our best to you. While forward through life we go, Great pride in our school will show. O Dear Bishop State so proud and true, We'll always think of you. – Woods
