University of Maryland University College honored 27 Doctor of Management candidates and conferred their degrees during the 2017 doctoral commencement ceremony at the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center on Thursday evening May 11. It was the overture to a Mother’s Day weekend of ceremonies at the Xfinity Center in College Park, Maryland, honoring the university’s associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree graduates.
It was an out-of-the-ordinary Mother’s Day for Lucy Capers this year. Instead of gathering as usual with her large family, the 79-year-old mother, grandmother and great grandmother was busy at the third of three University of Maryland University College (UMUC) stateside commencement ceremonies held over the weekend.
