Connors State Graduates Largest Class In College History

Mayor Bob Coburn

Connors State College recently celebrated its 107th graduating class.  Approximately 613 degrees and certificates were awarded making it the largest commencement in Connors’ history.

“We are very proud of our students,” said Registrar Kwanna King.  “They have worked hard and have met all of the requirements for graduation.”

The Commencement Ceremony was held May 6, 2016, at the Muskogee Civic Center. City of Muskogee Mayor Bob Coburn was the keynote speaker and imparted excellent words of wisdom to the graduates.

Coburn spoke of family and his education, encouraging students to continue to learn and to never give in when times are tough.

“Learning does not stop in the classroom,” said Coburn. “It continues throughout life. Reading from a book is a great thing, but it’s how you apply the process learned that is most important.”

Sharon Greenmyer, the 2016 Faculty of the Year, proudly led the procession carrying the college mace, which is embedded with CSC history. Connors President Dr. Tim Faltyn was Master of Ceremonies for the evening, while Paul Bright, Mr. Connors and SGA President, and Regent Joe D. Hall, Chairman of the Oklahoma A&M Board of Regents, both welcomed the crowd and offered congratulations to graduates.

Also representing the Oklahoma A&M Board of Regents were Regent Tucker Link and Regent Rick Davis.
