Saturday was a day for Tabor College seniors to reflect on their time as scholars while looking ahead to the next step.
In Hannah Vogt’s charge to graduates, she had all students close their eyes and think about the time they laughed the hardest and the time they were the saddest during their time at the school.
During Dr. Jarrod Goentzel’s speech to Tabor College graduates, he encouraged students to follow their minds when it came to their career paths.
Goentzel, an alumnus of Tabor, told graduates of how he once sat in their shoes, wondering himself what his career path would be.
“Finding the right profession is rarely about a big revelation,” he said. “It often comes in little nudges that you need to follow in order to discover your passion.”
On the day, 137 students graduated from the Hillsboro campus, the largest in school history. The Wichita campus graduated 37 undergraduates and four masters degree candidates.
Seniors Terach Antoine and Hannah Vogt both received the Professor Fran Jabara Leadership Award, worth $1,000 each
