One hundred and ninety-nine students to receive degrees at UMFK's 121st commencement

April 25, 2003

NR03074

One hundred and ninety-nine students will receive degrees at the 121st commencement exercises at the University of Maine at Fort Kent on Saturday, May 10, at 1:00 p.m. in the University SportsCenter.

President Richard Cost will preside over the awarding of one hundred and seventy-four bachelor and twenty-five associate degrees.

In addition to awarding diplomas to members of the class of 2003, James D. Irving, president of J. D. Irving, Limited, will be presented with an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters, which will be conferred by Cost.

Irving, who will also address graduates and guests during the commencement ceremony, is president of the international forest products company which produces a full and wide range of forest products including lumber, Kraft pulp, newsprint, tissue and corrugated medium. The company also manages environmentally certified woods in Maine, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec.

The University of Maine System Board of Trustees voted earlier this year to grant the honorary degree to Irving.

In addition to Irving, UMFK senior class president Joy Gervais will address her fellow graduates. Gervais of Frenchville will graduate with a bachelor of science degree in behavioral science.

Also at the commencement ceremony, Martin B. Bernstein and Sandra B. Bernstein will be awarded, as a couple, the 2003 Distinguished Service Award. The honor is bestowed annually to deserving recipients who have rendered service to the campus, community, St. John Valley, Aroostook County, and the State of Maine.

Martin Bernstein has been CEO of the St. John Valley's Northern Maine Medical Center for 20 years. Sandra Bernstein has been superintendent of schools in Maine School Administrative District 27 for nearly a decade.
