BDPA Honors Midshipman Raven Stevenson at her U.S. Naval Officer Commission​ing Ceremony

Posted By Paulette Johnson, Friday, May 17, 2013

BDPA Members and Friends,

GCBDPA Chapter President Mildred Allen and I were honored to be present at the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps Commissioning ceremony on Friday, May 10th at the Duke University Chapel, Duke University, in Durham, NC. Raven Stevenson, a graduate of our local HSCC training program, was commissioned in the United States Navy on Friday, and she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Duke University on Sunday. What an outstanding set of achievements!

You may remember Raven as the GCBDPA HSCC student who won the $180,000 scholarship in 2009 while competing at the HSCC competition in Washington, DC. Her fellow team members were Dominique Geiger and Sami Patel. 

After the Commissioning Ceremony, the BDPA Triangle Chapter hosted a reception for Raven and her family at the First Flight Venture Center in Durham, NC. The reception was attended by members of Raven’s family, as well as by members of the BDPA Triangle, BDPA DC, and BDPA Greater Columbia Area chapters, and the BDPA National President, Monique Berry.

Ensign Stevenson will be reporting to CG 66 USS HUE CITY in Mayport, Florida, in August.Attached are a few pictures from Friday’s events. We congratulate Raven on her outstanding accomplishments and wish her every success in the future.
