Davenport Campus honors 150 new grads

Commencement ceremonies on Oct. 24, 2008, in Vickie Anne Palmer Hall’s Lyceum Auditorium on the Davenport Campus, marked the graduation of 143 Doctor of Chiropractic, four Associate of Science in Chiropractic Technology and three Master of Science in Clinical Research degree recipients.

Frank Klipsch, M.Ed., Ph.D. (Hon.), president and CEO of the Scott County Family YMCA, was the commencement speaker. He reminded the graduates that, “How you live your life and how you deliver acts of service frames how you’re known today and how you’re remembered 20, 50 or 100 years in the future.”

Awards were given to five valedictorians: Jennifer Hinschberger, Klemme, Iowa; Nicholas Hoyer, Manson, Iowa; Troy Moore, Park View, Iowa; Nicole Schmidt, Pacific Palisades, Calif.; and Nicholas Weber, Osage, Iowa. Benjamin Erlandson, Westby, Wis., received the Virgil V. Strang Philosophy Award, and Bradford DeWitt, Bettendorf, Iowa, won the Clinical Excellence Award as well as the John Connolly Memorial Award for scholarship and involvement in Palmer and community organizations.

The co-salutatorians were Aaron Bannister, Davison, Mich., and Andy Wei-hong So, Brampton, Ont., Canada. Davenport Campus Assistant Professor Lisa Petersen, Ph.D., was the Awards Convocation speaker. Visit to see the graduation photo gallery.
