Fox alumnus holds Marine Officer Commissioning Ceremony in Alter Hall
Upon completion of the Marine Enlisted Commissioning Education Program (MECEP) Jeffrey Simonton, BBA ’13, was able to finish his undergraduate degree in legal studies at the Fox School of Business and earn the rank of second lieutenant. As homage of his hard work and time devoted to finishing his degree, he held his Officer Commissioning Ceremony at Alter Hall.
“I felt there was no other place to celebrate the culmination of three years of hard work except where it all took place,” Simonton said of the Dec 2013 ceremony.
About 35 members of his family and friends witnessed Simonton accept service into the Marine Corps and pledge an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States.
