Antonelli College holds graduation ceremony

Paola Roumani of Cincinnati, Ohio and Blaire Dorsey of Ft. Thomas, Kentucky were rewarded with top academic honors as a total of 11 students earned their Occupational Associate of Applied Science degrees from Antonelli College. With a final overall GPA of 3.79 Roumani was named Valedictorian while Dorsey's 3.69 GPA gave her the Salutatorian distinction. Roumani studied Interior Design while Dorsey studied Photography.

Of the cohort, Sean Fried (Florence, Ky.) walked for his degree in Business Administration while Jessica Sizemore (Cincinnati, Ohio) acquired her degree in Graphic Design. In addition to Roumani, Raquel Diallo (Cincinnati, Ohio), Nicole Makin (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Suzanne Norman (Hamilton, Ohio) received their degree in Interior Design. The Photography graduates were Dorsey, Laura Beck (Cincinnati, Ohio), Alphie Hill (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Kevin Parker (Cincinnati, Ohio). Also, Lisa Martin (Wilmington, Ohio) completed her Medical Coding requirements. From the group, Roumani graduated with magna cum laude honors; Norman, Beck and Dorsey were awarded cum laude chords.

The graduation ceremony was held on March 30th, at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. Alumna Deanna Evans served as the keynote speaker. Evans is a 1990 Antonelli College graduate and the owner of Fresh Event wedding planning services.

"The path I am traveling was ultimately jump started by the education I received at Antonelli College. I hope to motivate and inspire the students to set a creative path for their own future accomplishments," said Evans.

Prior to the ceremony, the cohort was recognized at a luncheon and awards ceremony where Roumani was the lone graduate to be named to the Director's List (quarterly GPA of 3.9 or higher) while Sizemore, Norman and Beck were included on the Dean's List (quarterly GPA of 3.5 or higher). Sizemore was selected as the Achievement Award recipient.
