Tabor College will have its 104th commencement ceremony at 10 a.m. May 17 at Joel H. Wiens Stadium in Hillsboro.
This year’s commencement includes 137 traditional undergraduates; 97 have completed all requirements and will receive diplomas. The remaining 40 will receive their diplomas after completing requirements in the upcoming fall semester.
Students attending Tabor in Wichita also will graduate in Hillsboro. Fifteen have completed all requirements and will receive their undergraduate diplomas; 23 will receive their degrees as soon as they complete remaining requirements; and four graduate students will receive their degrees.
“Commencement is unquestionably the highlight of the academic calendar,” vice president of academic affairs Frank Johnson said. “We are so proud of each student who has reached this milestone. I look forward to hearing the many stories of how these graduates will enrich the communities where they are soon to reside, work, and worship.”
Jarrod Goentzel, a Tabor alumnus and director of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Humanitarian Response Lab, will be the commencement speaker.
Tabor estimates 3,000 family, friends, alumni, faculty, and staff will attend the ceremony.
