Montreat College Celebrates December Commencement

December 10, 2012

Montreat College will celebrate December Commencement exercises at 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 15 in Anderson Auditorium in Montreat, NC. Montreat welcomes Dr. Kenneth Boa as the keynote speaker for Commencement.

Montreat College will award diplomas to 115 students who have completed undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies degrees.  Ms. Debra Woody, School of Adult and Graduate Studies graduate, and Ms. MK Bellamy, School of Arts and Sciences graduate, will give addresses to their class. 

The College will award an honorary degree to Dr. Donald R. Mitchell which will be received by his wife, Mrs. Grace Mitchell.  Dr. Mitchell was a lifelong student, scholar, and champion of Christian higher education. He was important to Montreat College and a faithful supporter since 1968. Under his leadership as dean of the College, the Board of Trustees made a deliberate decision to affirm its commitment to biblical truth and to the promotion of the integration of faith and learning in the classroom.

Montreat graduates and their families are invited to numerous events over graduation weekend. To begin, graduates in the School of Arts and Sciences and their families are invited to the annual Senior Brunch on Friday, December 14 at 10 a.m. in Gaither Fellowship Hall.

All Montreat graduates and their families are invited to the annual Graduate BBQ Luncheon on Saturday, December 15 at 11:30 a.m. in Howerton Dining Hall. The luncheon is free for graduates and $6.75 for family and friends. Contact Phyllis Howell at phowell@montreat.edu to RSVP.
