Loretta Claiborne to receive honorary degree, speak at York College commencement

There aren’t many things left, accolades-wise, for York County’s Loretta Claiborne to accomplish. But come Dec. 18, you can add a third honorary doctorate to the list.

Loretta will receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from York College of Pennsylvania and will speak to the nearly 300 graduates at the College’s commencement ceremony.

The program will begin at 10:15 a.m. in the Grumbacher Sport and Fitness Center’s M&T Field House. Associate Professor of Chemistry Jessica Fautch, recipient of the Presidential Award for Teaching and Mentoring Excellence, will also address the audience.
