Graduation 2010

The Class of 2010 made it official as they walked across the stage at the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Administration Building on the afternoon of December 10th.  The 52 graduates were cheered on by many happy family and friends as they received their master’s hoods and diplomas. Dr. Charles Moore, well known ENT physician at Emory, was selected by the class at the graduation speaker. He spoke about the honor of being allowed in to our patient's lives and the importance of establishing meaningful patient connections.

 The graduation day began with a morning ceremony held in Cox Hall on the Emory campus as each student received their long white coat. Graduates chose a friend or family member that had made a significant contribution to their PA education, and this designated person “coated” the graduate at the ceremony. 

Also at the brunch, awards were given to several distinguished recipients: Clinical Teacher of the Year and Outstanding PA of the Year: Michael Martinelli, MHS, PA-C; Community Preceptor of the Year Award: Kathryn Mansfield, MD; and Didactic Teacher of the Year Award: Marquitha Mayfield, MEd, PA-C.

Chosen by his fellow classmates, Collin McDonald provided an extraordinarily humorous look the past twenty-eight months of the PA program. One classmate wrote that he did a “masterful job of blending humor, humility, wisdom, and love for our class and the profession.” Collin creatively acknowledged faculty and class contributions to his education, their help guiding the class through the rigors of PA school and the importance of being a part of the Emory family.
