Wallace Community College - Dothan Confers Degrees on Graduates

5/16/2016

Dothan, Ala. — Wallace Community College – Dothan conferred degrees and certificates on Wednesday, May 11, during the Spring 2016 Commencement Exercises at the Dothan Civic Center.

Dr. Perry W. Ward, president of Lawson State Community College in Birmingham, Alabama, offered the keynote address. Dr. Ward has proven to be a progressive and innovative leader. Under his guidance, Lawson State has expanded its curriculum and increased enrollment numbers. His support has led to the implementation of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs at Lawson State.

In September 2011, Dr. Ward was one of 17 community college presidents to be honored as a “Champion of Change” at the White House. In March 2015, President Obama visited Lawson State to deliver a message on the economy, a result of Dr. Ward’s vision to embrace local workforce training to meet economic needs. Lawson State was recently named one of “America’s Top 50 Community Colleges.”

Michael Martin was selected as the Wallace Community College alumnus of the year. Mr. Martin graduated from WCCD with an associate degree in 1977. In 1982, he joined Herndon Oil Corporation as an auditor and now serves as President of the company.

In 2008, Mr. Martin returned to school to complete his education. At one time he was attending Huntingdon College, Troy University Dothan, and Wallace at the same time. He graduated from Huntingdon College in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management, cum laude.
