In a letter to Fischer, Five Towns College President David M Cohen J.D. stated, “Each year the Five Towns College Board of Trustees invites the faculty and student body to nominate individuals who have distinguished themselves as role models to receive honorary doctorates. This year, students and faculty have nominated you (Carl Fischer) for your outstanding contribution to Rock and Roll and to contemporary music. Because you serve as wonderful example for aspiring musicians, always displaying the highest standards of musicianship, the Board of Trustees enthusiastically joins in their decision.”
