Conant, supervisor of ChildStudy Programs, Prince Georges County Board of Education, delivers the commencement address to the 78 members of the class of 1970 at the Frederick Community College. Dr. Conant discussed student dissent and the manner which older generations receive it. The academic efforts of 78 students in Frederick were rewarded May 24 when the Frederick Community College conferred degrees on the graduating members of the class of 1970. In the Twelfth Commencement, exercises, the college also awarded certificates to five students for work done at FCC. Dr. Margaret M. Conant, supervisor of Child Study Programs, Board of Education, Prince Georges County, struck a timely note as she delivered the commencement address. Dr. Conant spoke of student dissent, and how that dissent is being received by members of the "older generation." Young people should be allowed to become involved in the complex decision-making processes earlier than they do, the doctor said. As it turns out, society has not heeded the voice of its young people, and one of the results is the violence recently witnessed on college campuses throughout the nation. "I feel that if we had listened earlier, the violence we are seeing today could have been avoided," Dr. Conant asserted. Students are asking for very reasonable things, she continued. They are asking that we re-order our priorities to meet important social needs, and that we pay more attention to immediate problems, she said. They are asking society for greater attention to truth, and for open - mindedness to new ideas. They are asking for greater personal autonomy, and want to assume a greater share · of responsibility. Finally, she said, they are as king that we show a greater reverence for life. ' "These are all things that must characterize our changing society, if we are to survive, said Dr. Conant. Presiding over the exercises was Dr. Lewis W.Stephens,pres- ident of Frederick Community College. Dr. Stephens conferred the degrees upon the 78 graduates. An inspirational address was given by the Rev. Allen M. Mullan, who also gave the benediction. This was the last graduating class from FCC's North Market Street location. A new campus on OTossumtown Pike is scheduled to open in the fall with expanded facilities.
