On March 6, the College Adjustment Program (CAP) celebrated 30 years of service with a reception in the Friends of the Library Room.

About 50 faculty, administrators, students, staff, and alumni assembled to celebrate the program's achievements in helping traditionally underrepresented students earn an undergraduate degree.

President Roderick J. McDavis delivered opening remarks about the importance of access in modern higher education. University College Dean David Descutner shared his experiences as a first-generation college student and talked about the significance of CAP to students.

During the reception, Ohio University employees Stacey Brinkley, Patti McSteen, and Trevis Thompson were recognized as outstanding CAP alumni. Current students Sarah Dutton, Britney Grimmelsman and Angela Haning also were honored as outstanding CAP achievers.

The university's Office of Student Financial Aid was awarded the outstanding CAP advocate award for its more than 30 years of support to the program. Associate Director of Student Financial Aid Valerie Miller accepted the award on behalf of the office.

"The CAP 30th anniversary reception was a wonderful event because it was not only as a celebration of 30 years of service excellence by the dedicated staff, but also a recognition of the talent and potential of traditionally disadvantaged students," said Cynthia Kabat King, assistant dean of University College and director of the Academic Advancement Center. "It is a humbling experience to realize I am a part of the incredible CAP legacy."
