SALISBURY, MD---When Salisbury University conferred degrees during its Spring Commencement ceremony at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center, it became a celebration for students from two campuses.

Students from SU’s Elementary Education Cohort Program accepted their diplomas along with traditional graduates during the ceremony. All 10 graduates in the program previously completed the A.A.T. program at Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, MD.

A graduation celebration dinner was held at the Eastern Shore Higher Education Center (ESHEC) at Chesapeake College. Representatives from both campuses, along with family and friends, gathered to recognize the accomplishments of this unique group of students.

Cohort members reside on the Mid- and Upper Eastern Shore. The program allows them to complete their elementary education degree through SU while attending cohort classes at the ESHEC. Among this year’s graduates are Dorine Armiger of Ridgely, MD; Rebecca Armiger of Stevensville, MD; Angela Bozman of East New Market, MD; Dana Fletcher of Massey, MD; Samantha Hughes of Easton, MD; Megan Lamb of Grasonville, MD; Angela Latham of Centreville, MD; Taylor Nordike of Easton, MD; Britney Steele of Denton, MD; and Sarah Tomey of Secretary, MD.

Members graduating this spring composed the sixth cohort of teacher candidates. A seventh cohort has completed its first year in the program, and plans are underway for a new cohort to begin in the fall.
