Honorary Doctor of Public Service

Hodges University has awarded an Honorary Doctor of Public Service degree to alumnae Donna Marie Hamilton Ross. She graduated in June 2012, with a Master’s Degree in Public Administration, and also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Hodges University. “So many people are conferred with honorary doctorates, and none that I could think of, despite their celebrity or ability to donate charitable sums were any more deserving than Donna Marie Hamilton Ross,” explained Dr. Peter Karastamatis, professor in the Johnson School of Business at Hodges. “Dr. Jeanette Brock, Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs, informed me that Hodges University has the ability to bestow individuals with honorary doctorates, but that the approval of the academic committee and of the Board of Trustees must first be obtained. Approval was resoundingly granted!” Dr. Hamilton Ross served as a volunteer and advocate with Jamaica AIDS Support. In 2003 she was elected as Chairperson for Prevention, Education and Support Services for the Jamaica National AIDS Regional Committee. In 2007 she was awarded the National Award for Volunteerism in the field of AIDS Education and Support. Dr. Hamilton moved to Ft. Myers and attended Hodges University to pursue her Bachelor’s and then Master’s degrees. While working to complete her undergraduate degree, she also found time to volunteer each week with the local Island Coast AIDS Network and Southwest Florida Addiction Services.
