Project And Perceive 



We are the Future 

Ms. Theresa Foster Childress 



The legacy of the past will always influence us in some form or fashion. The struggles that we have all encoun- 
tered and the paths that the ancestors and parents etiher followed or created on their own, have been both moti- 
vating and uplifting to the human spirit. 

Hopefully, we have been able as individuals to stay on the straight and narrow path and follow what has been 
instilled in us: morals, values, sound judgement and concern for others. No matter what extra problems come our 
way, we can stuggle, overcome them; being poor is no excuse for not achieving some positive goal. 

To the people that have gone before us, the ones that sit beside us in class, the teachers that are our mentors as 
well as others that have inspired us, may your assistance be not in vain. 

We hope that since we entered the halls of UMES as naive young adults, we have gained the knowledge and 
skills to go forth in this world and lay the foundations for others to achieve their dreams as our ancestors did for 
us! 

Soar on my fellow HAWKS!

Greetings: 

I commend the Yearbook staff and their Advisor on the publication of the 2000 Hawk 
Yearbook. 

It is imperative that we continue to capture the rich legacy of the University of Maryland 
Eastern Shore through memorable photographs and reflective words. Once again, the staff and 
advisor of the Hawk Yearbook have accepted the charge to produce a yearbook that captures the 
spirit of the Hawk Family. 

The 2000 Hawk Yearbook will serve as a valuable resource and reference for those who 
wish to be introduced to UMES for the first time and as a poignant reminder and source of pride 
for those who are already students, alumni,, supporters and friends of the University. 

May we all continue to chronicle and celebrate the rich history and tradition of our great 
institution. 

Sincerely, 



V<1(&^GULZ> f^. /CLp^^i^

PERCEIVE THE UMES LIFE 

Historical Overview 

of 

UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND EASTERN SHORE 

UMES has had several names in its history. Under the control of the Centenary Biblical Institute, the branch known as 
the Delaware Conference Academy, was founded on September 13, 1886, with an enrollment of nine students. Records 
reveal that 37 students were enrolled by the end of the year. Subsequently, the institution bore the title of Industrial Branch 
of Morgan State College, still under the influence of the Delaware Conference. As originally operated by Morgan State 
College under the control of the Methodist Church, the institution was known as Princess Anne Academy. 

The state of Maryland, in operating its land-grant program at the Maryland Agriculture College at College Park to which 
Afro- Americans were not admitted as students, sought to provide a land-grant program for Afro-Americans and took over 
the Princess Anne Academy, renaming it the Eastern Branch of the Maryland Agricultural College. This arrangement was 
effected in 1919. 

In 1926, the college passed into complete control and ownership of the State, and the University of Maryland was 
designated as the administrative agency. 

In 1948, the Eastern Branch of the University of Maryland, popularly known as Princess Anne Academy, was officially 
titled Maryland State College, a division of the University of Maryland. 

On July 1, 1970, Maryland State College became the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

Over the winter season, we 
received a lot of snow. As you 
can see, it brought out the 
Christmas spirit in many. 
Many volunteered as bell 
ringers for the Salvation 
Army, collecting money for 
the less fortunate. Manne- 
quins were showing off the 
new winter formal wear, dis- 
played in Henson Center. We 
also had jolly Ole St. Nicholas 
stop by and listen to some 
of the children's Christmas 
wishes. The Christmas tree 
was beautifully decorated 
with lights, bows, snowflakes, 
and cream colored bulbs.

UMES's Music Department is filled with 
gifted musicians whose talents often go un- 
recognized. Under the direction of John R. 
Lamkin, II, the UMES jazz ensemble give 
their all in each in every performance play- 
ing with true heart. Only musicians with 
their extraordinary talent and skill could be 
worthy of playing with some of jazz's leg- 
endary artists, and each and every time the 
UMES Jazz Ensemble proves that they are 
indeed worthy.

ACADEMIC DEGREES 

REFERENCE: Academic Degrees, 

Office of Education, U.S. Department of 

Health, Education and Welfare, 1960 

A degree is awarded for the successful completion of a course of study. There are more than 1,600 different academic 

egrees currently conferred by American colleges and universities. 
The first known degree was a doctorate conferred by the University of Bologna in the middle of the 12th centurv. 

iriginally, the doctor's and master's degrees were used interchangeably, each indicating that the holder was qualified to 

ive instruction to students. The bachelor's or baccalaureate degree indicated only entrance upon a course of study 
preparatory to the doctorate of mastership. Gradually, however, the bachelor's degree came to mean successful 
l^mpletion of one level of study preparatory to the higher degrees. 
■ The degree. Bachelor of Science, was awarded to four graduating members of the class of 1851 of Harvard University, 

.robably the first to receive this degree from any institution. From 1851 to 1905, the degree was conferred only upon 
ftudents registered in the Lawrence Scientific School; after 1905, on students of Harvard, also. 

I The master's degree, as it has evolved in American universities, is an advanced degree representing at least one year 
I f course work beyond the baccalaureate degree. The degree is sometimes granted after a two-year professional program 

3 is common in business administration or a three-year program in the case of fine arts. It may also have additional 

equirements such as a major thesis and general examination. 

THE ACADEMIC COSTUME 

REFERENCE: American University and Colleges 
American Council on Education, 1968 

The black caps and gowns worn by the students and faculty in the academic procession are of ancient origin. They have 
een the traditional costume of the scholar since medieval times and probably represent an adaptation of the ecclesiastical 
ress since many of the scholars of the period were members of the monastic orders. 

An intercollegiate commission, in 1893, drafted a uniform code for costumes which has since been adopted by the 
aajority of colleges and universities in the United States. Each of the three academic degrees - bachelor, master, and doctor 
has its own distinctive gown and hood. The bachelor's gown is distinguished by its long point sleeve. The master's gown 
las a long, narrow, closed sleeve, extending below the knee; the arm is passed through a slit at the elbow. In contrast, the 
loctor's gown has a full bell-shaped sleeve with three bars of velvet. The opening of this gown is faced with wide \'el\'et 
ands. The velvet trim may be black or of a color indicating the general field of learning of the wearer, for example, blue 
or philosophy, green for medicine, purple for law. 

The most colorful and distinctive item of the academic costume is the hood which passes around the neck and extends 
lown the back. The doctor's is the largest of the hoods and the bachelor's the smallest. The bachelor's hood is often omitted, 
^he color of the velvet edging indicates the field of learning.

The purpose of Hands in Ministry is to enhance the rec- 
ognition of Jesus Christ on the University of Maryland East- 
em Shore's campus and the community. Hands in Ministry 
is responsible for spreading the word of God and believe 
that all men should have the opportunity to hear the word 
of a God. Todah prepare their members to communicate 
and minister to the deaf community. 

The members of Hands in Ministry seek to effectively 
minister to the hearing, as well as the hearing impaired by 
formatting a sign language choir. Todah, a Hebrew word 
meaning, "sacrifice of praise," is a dynamic and unique 
choir that spreads God's word through sign. It is an encour- 
agement to the hearing to find their purpose in ministry 
and it is a way to worship with the hearing impaired. As a 
Bible-based organization, Todah aims to reach those who 
may be interested in broadening the ways in which whey 
minister and exalt the name to the Lord.

ARTS AND CULTURE 



Arts and Culture play a significant part in our lives today. They mold who we are at the present time and who we 
will be in the future. Music, painting, drama, and live performances all contribute to what we call the Arts. Many 
students enjoy reaching back into their cultural roots in reviving old traditions and spreading them by performing in 
front of a live audience. Some artists enjoy expressing themselves through artwork, to convey a hidden message to be 
understood by the viewer. Another way to experience a different culture is through drama, which allows a spectator 
to have the performers experience what he or she went through first-hand.

Fellow Hawks, 

Now that the time has come for us to truly spread our wings like the mighty Hawk, we 
now must reflect on the past. We must remember all of the good times and the bad times. We 
must remember and cherish these, the very experiences that have molded us into the men and 
women that we have become in the past few years. We must use the knowledge that we have 
obtained to blaze a path for our future. Now we must impart our wisdom on those behind us 
showing them how to truly be a Hawk! As you flip through these pages, remember the past, 
embrace the future, but most of all, set it off in the new millennium. 



Sincerely, 

Elden Wayne Hawkes Junior

It's Done!!! Finally! Another book completed! What took so long, you ask? Well, production didn't get 
under way until March, due to a change in the Editor-n-Chief, staff, and office space. The staff wasn't as- 
sembled until February. Only a few were interested in doing publications for this mighty University. 1 tar- 
geted the English and Publicahon majors, even Agriculture. No shame! My goal was to have a staff that 
had interest and experience. 1 ended up with a few interests. It takes a month to train and develop a year- 
book staff. If you look at it, we only had a month and a half to complete the book during the spring se- 
mester. That didn't happen! So I had to try and finish it over the summer break. The book was finally 
completed on September 27, 2000. Although there were many challenges that we faced in putting this 
yearbook together, we worked together and finished. Our attempt to make this yearbook a very profes- 
sional and memorable one took a lot of effort and work. Just like any other organization on campus, we 
had our times of disagreements. As I told the staff "we don't have time for disagreements, we need agree- 
ments now!" The goal of this yearbook was to eliminate all white space, have more captions, more arti- 
cles, and a steady theme throughout the book. Hopefully next year's book will project and perceive the 
future of the yearbook at UMES. 

I hope any organization not shown or has a half a page is not disappointed, if so I apologize. But we did 
send four memos to submit six photos and a brief summary of their organization. It's a shame the year- 
book doesn't have a page, but we were so busy trying to get all of your information, we forgot about our- 
selves. 

This project would not have been possible without the input and labor of the yearbook staff. I want to 
thank all the extra help: Dr. White, Lauren Hite, Sakeena Davis, William Taylor, Syreeta Scott, Coya Dix, 
Erin Hightower, Brandon Flook, Dante Zarella, Chris Morris, Ms. Wright, Ms. Upchurch, and Coach Dou- 
glas. Thank you all for doing a magnificent job. We, the staff are hope that this yearbook is a new way and 
new generation of Projecting and Perceiving the Future. We all hope you enjoy looking through this book 
of memories, and hoping you continue looking as years pass by. As a student now, project your future, 
then perceive who you are. 

Good luck and God bless you all. Congratulahons Class of 2000!
