On Friday, May 11, 2018, the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program graduated its first two students. Dr. Jolinda (J.C.) Wilson and Dr. Edward Rife both were members of Cohort 1, which began in the Summer of 2015. The ceremony took place in the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center.

Both Dr. Wilson and Dr. Rife serve as administrators in the Greencastle-Antrim School District. The faculty and students at Shippensburg University salute these two accomplished leaders for this amazing feat.
