For this year’s DMSB graduating class, July 8, 2022 was a special day. During the graduation ceremony, one female and eight male graduates received their certificates and decorative diplomas. About 60 guests accepted the invitation to the Braunschweig restaurant LaCupola. At the beginning of the evening program, Principal Jörg Gerling welcomed those present, after which Director of Studies Georg Böttcher and the entire staff present handed over the long-awaited graduation documents. The culmination of the study program at the DMSB to qualify as a technician in mill construction plus cereals and feedstuff technology now includes the international title of “Bachelor Professional in Technology” for the second time. In addition to their studies at the DMSB, seven of the students also successfully passed the Master Miller Examination Board.
The mayor of the city of Braunschweig, Annegret Ihbe, also came and reminded the audience that Braunschweig is not only a good place to study, but given its numerous scientific, cultural and sporting facilities, it is always a great place to visit in the future. This was followed by the welcome address of Alexander Schnelle, the chairman of the booster club, which actively supports the DMSB. He encouraged all those present to join the club.
Outstanding team of three
For several years now, the Milling Pension Fund has been awarding cash prizes to the three students with the best average grade in their final examinations. Maren Sting, Jeffrey Freiter and Markus Bröer were delighted to receive the prize money. These three students were also the team that produced the best project, for which they also won the “Glück zu” fraternity‘s Karl-Heinz Gericke Award for the best-graded final paper. The topic of their project was about designing and planning a warehouse grain cleaning system.
Praising these three and all the other graduates was Michael Kammann, President of the “Glück zu” fraternity, who in his subsequent speech highlighted the successful collaboration between the fraternity, the booster club and the DMSB and the benefits of this global network. Finally, Michael Kammann thanked the four students who are now stepping down from the steering committee. These were again the students already mentioned by name plus Leonard Sökefeld.
Jeffrey Freiter took the floor on behalf of the graduating class and recalled the numerous events and field trips of the last two years. He concluded by characterizing each member of the graduating class both aptly and humorously and thanked all the teachers and staff of the DMSB. Afterwards, the social part of the evening began. Once again, the event was a great way to cap things off – as always tinged with mixed feelings. On the one hand, with joy at having successfully mastered the past two years together and, on the other hand, with regret at having to say goodbye to each other.
