Queens holds spring commencement

Queens University of Charlotte renewed a tradition Saturday morning, conducting its annual spring commencement exercises on Burwell Lawn, in front of the Myers Park school.

Students in the traditional bachelors degree programs participated in the event, with keynote speaker Donnell “Trip” Van Noppen III, president of the environmental law firm Earthjustice.

Queens’ nursing students received diplomas Thursday night, and students in the graduate school programs followed Friday.

Charlotte’s other colleges and universities -- UNC Charlotte, Davidson, Johnson C. Smith, Johnson & Wales, CPCC, and Charlotte School of Law -- will hold commencement exercises later this month.

In all, 17 colleges and universities across the Carolinas held graduation ceremonies Saturday. They included High Point University, where Apple Computers co-founder Steve Wozniak delivered the keynote address.

One school will have commencement Sunday -- St. Augustine’s University in Raleigh. Keynote speaker for the 9 a.m. event on campus is AT&T senior vice president Cynthia Marshall.
