Commencement 2016 Keynote Speaker
Bucks County Community College will celebrate its 50th annual commencement Thursday, May 19, 2016.
The 2016 Commencement Ceremony Keynote Speaker & Honorary Degree Recipient is Kevin Jameson.
Bucks County Community College welcomes Kevin Jameson, ‘78, president and founder of the Dementia Society of America and a proud Bucks alumnus, as commencement speaker.
Author, inventor and patent holder, Mr. Jameson began his career as a young entrepreneur at age 18. While a student at Bucks County Community College, he started his own marketing and advertising firm, then created an electronic security alarm company which he sold, and subsequently went to work for divisions of Bosch, General Electric and Honeywell International. His awards include the DECA Sales Presentation Excellence at age 19, which he won while attending Bucks, four-time winner of the Honeywell President’s Club Award, and Salesman of the Year.
Mr. Jameson also has a passion for travel in a quest to see how others really live. This has taken him to Europe, Asia, India, Australia, the Middle East, Africa, South and Central America, and throughout North America. He has run with the bulls in Pamplona, crawled into the underbelly of one of the Great Pyramids in Egypt, and taken his son into the Australian bush for a walkabout without a guide or much of a map.
Today, Mr. Jameson has undertaken a new passion by launching the first nationwide, all-volunteer nonprofit dedicated to increasing awareness to the broad spectrum of conditions which fall under the umbrella of Dementia. The Dementia Society of America provides all services for free, mainly through the largess and generosity of individual donors. We welcome Mr. Jameson back to his alma mater, where the seeds for his entrepreneurial spirit were first sown.
