On Saturday, May 8, at 9 A.M., in an outdoor ceremony in the Quad in the campus center, Trevecca Nazarene University will award degrees to 765 persons, the largest graduating class in the history of the University. Following a long-standing tradition, speakers for this event come from the University community. Delivering the challenge from the University will be Tim Green, University chaplain and dean of the School of Religion. Three students chosen to represent three groups of students--traditional undergraduates, graduate students, and degree-completion students--will respond to the challenge. They are Heather Dahms (traditional student), Steevon Hunter (graduate student), and Suzan Speer (degree-completion student).
In case of rain the ceremonies will be moved indoors to the Moore Gymnasium with the ceremony for undergraduates held at 9 A.M. and the ceremony for graduates held at 1 P.M.
The baccalaureate service will be held at 7:30 P.M. on Friday evening, May 7, at First Church of the Nazarene at 510 Woodland Street in Nashville. President Reed is the speaker at this service.
