Inspirational student stories put spotlight on Class of 2013

Degrees were conferred on 141 medical students and 72 graduate students at the 43rd Commencement of Penn State College of Medicine. The ceremony was held on Sunday, May 19, at Founder’s Hall in Hershey. Among those who earned degrees were:

  • Lt. Col. Guy Moon is a full-time active duty officer with the Nebraska Army National Guard who completed part of his homeland security degree while on a deployment in Afghanistan.
  • Meagan Horst is a young woman from central Pennsylvania who lost her father to non-Hodgkins lymphoma when she was 14, an experience that compelled her toward a career in medicine.
  • Elom Amoussou-Kpeto is an international student for whom a desire to improve health in his West African community drove him to the United States, where he parked cars to earn his way through college and medical school.
