Tabor College holds 108th commencement

More than 2,000 parents, family and friends gathered at Joel H. Wiens Stadium and via live stream on Tabor Webcast on Saturday to celebrate Tabor College’s 108th commencement.

Of the 190 graduates, 119 earned degrees at the Hillsboro campus. Online degrees were granted to 71 graduates of the Wichita campus, including 33 master’s degrees in business, ministry, and nursing.

Molly Wiebe Faber and Philip Ediger, both of Hillsboro, received Fran Jabara Leadership awards.

At a reception Friday, Jordan Horstick of Richmond and Sierra Sanchez of Chonburi, Thailand, were awarded Larry and Elaine Nikkel Service awards.

Ambassador Paul Folmsbee, a 1982 graduate of Tabor, addressed the graduates on “Being Resilient.” Folmsbee is the U.S. ambassador to the Republic of Mali and has served in that role since 2015 when he was confirmed after an appointment from President Barack Obama.
