On Saturday, May 11, the Commencement address for the Class of 2013 was delivered by Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler, who spoke about the adversity each graduate will face at some point in his or her career.

"To succeed in your careers, you must ignore the limits placed on you by others," Gansler said. "Only you can know your full potential."

After Gansler's speech, Capitol College administrators announced the winners of various awards and scholarships. Capitol President Dr. Wood also took time to congratulate and share his wisdom with the graduating Class of 2013.
