Tabor celebrates 106th commencement

Tabor College celebrated its 106th commencement ceremony Saturday at Joel H. Wiens stadium.

Approximately 2,000 parents, family, and friends gathered at the stadium and via live stream on the Tabor Webcast channel.

President Jules Glanzer welcomed the crowd applauding the graduates for their hard work and commitment to Tabor throughout their education, and also gave a nod to family and friends who supported and sacrificed for their loved ones.

Among other honors and recognitions, two Tabor graduates received Professor Fran Jabara Leadership award given to graduates of four-year private colleges in Kansas.

Jeremy Johnson and Amy Vaughn received the award, which is given to seniors who not only demonstrate leadership while at Tabor, but also their capacity for future leadership.

Allie Jost spoke to the Tabor class about the breadth of learning she had received and how Tabor has prepared her for a career as an educator.

Lee Waldron, who received his M.A. in Entrepreneurial Ministry Leadership, spoke about the perspective his Tabor education has provided.

Bryce Unruh, a 1991 Tabor graduate, gave the commencement address to graduates.
