Commencement Speech by Bill Schlotterer


OU-COM's graduating Class of 2002 told to face the future with commitment and courage

ATHENS, Ohio -- "I want you to remember," said commencement speaker William Schlotterer, D.O. ('80), to the College of Osteopathic Medicine's graduating Class of 2002, "that the future does not belong to those who are content with today, to those who are apathetic towards common problems and their fellow man alike or to those timid and fearful in the face of new ideas and old problems."

Schlotterer delivered the address at OU-COM's 23rd graduation exercises June 1, during which the 94 members of the Class of 2002 became doctors of osteopathic medicine. The ceremony took place in Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium on Ohio University's Athens campus.

Commencement speaker Schlotterer was a member of the college's first graduating class of 21 in 1980. Soon after establishing a family practice in Ohio, Schlotterer found himself, as other physicians nationwide during the mid 1980s, facing the growing AIDS crisis. He became an early and strong advocate of compassionate, enlightened and comprehensive treatment for AIDS patients. In June 1990, Schlotterer appeared on "ABC News with Peter Jennings" to discuss AIDS.

Facing the future with boldness and conviction, especially in the shadow of the national tragedy of Sept. 11, said Schlotterer, was for those ready to fill the future with "passion, reason and courage and a personal commitment to the ideas and great enterprises of American society." "Let the word go forth," he said, "from this time and this place to friend and foe alike, that the torch is being passed to a new generation of Americans coming of age in this millennium, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage and with an unwillingness to witness or permit a slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed and to which we are committed to today, at home and around the world."

He also admonished the members of the graduating class to be appreciative of the support and help, financial and moral, given to them by parents, grandparents, professors and mentors. All of them, he said, had helped them achieve their goals of becoming physicians. "Ladies and gentlemen, you have had the opportunity to experience the finest medical education available. I encourage you all to get out there and do your best. "In closing, ladies and gentlemen," he said, "this is the real thing. This is what you have been training for. Make us proud."
