A.T. Still University-School of Health Management honors graduating students.

Kirksville, MO (PRWEB) July 17, 2009 -- Virtual classmates met face-to-face to celebrate the completion of their education at A.T. Still University-School of Health Management's commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 6.

Graduates gathered in Ophelia Parrish Performing Arts Center on the campus of Truman State University in Kirksville, and motivational speaker Kevin Eikenberry delivered the keynote address. A two-time best-selling author, speaker, and consultant, he is the Chief Potential Officer of The Kevin Eikenberry Group, a learning consulting company. He has worked with numerous Fortune 500 companies and well-known organizations, including the American Red Cross, John Deere, Shell and the U.S. Marine Corps. As an author, he has published
"Remarkable Leadership: Unleashing Your Leadership Potential One Skill at a Time" (2007) as well as "Vantagepoints on Learning and Life" (2006). As a motivational speaker, Eikenberry emphasized the extraordinary potential of both people and organizations and that all aspects of life, including learning and work, should be fun.

Both learning and work have paid off for SHM's graduating class and the number achieving a degree is higher than ever this year. A total of 162 students from 31 different states were honored: graduates from last summer, graduates from last fall and winter, and this spring's graduates. The majority, 74 students, received a master of public health; in addition, 31 received a master of health administration, 10 received a master of geriatric health, and eight comprise the second group ever to receive a doctorate of health education. Finally, 34 received certificates in Public Health, and five received a certificate in Healthcare Administration.

"Graduates of ATSU are using the osteopathic principles to change the face of health care in the United States and this year's ATSU-SHM graduates are no different," said SHM Dean Kimberly O'Reilly, D.H.Ed., M.S.W. "The School of Health Management is excited to graduate its largest class to the field of medicine and mind, body, and spirit care."

While in Kirksville, commencement speaker Eikenberry also addressed the public at a gathering at Napoli's Italian Restaurant on Friday, June 5. He spoke on "Leading in a Climate of Change" at 7 p.m.; the event was free of charge to the community.
