Graduation is one of my favorite times of the year. I love watching our Advance Program students walk across the stage and receive their hard-earned diplomas. It's gratifying to know how much finishing a degree means to them... to see the pride on their faces and the faces of their loved ones... to know the sacrifice and hard work have paid off.
Last month was no exception, when 72 graduates shook the hand of JBU President Pollard and received their diplomas on May 15. For many, it was their first time on the main campus in Siloam Springs. But they joined the ranks of thousands of JBU alumni who--regardless of the location where they took classes--are united in their mission to advance the cause of Christ and make a better life for themselves and their families.
Thanks to Kimberly from NW65 for sharing the photo above of her and some cohort-mates. Congratulations to all of you, and best of luck!
