December commencement honors record number of fall graduates

As another semester came to a close this week, another group of Lipscomb students walked across the stage in Allen Arena Saturday afternoon to receive their diplomas.

Lipscomb University’s December commencement ceremony honored the 414 students earning their undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees.

The number of honorees at Saturday’s commencement is a fall record for the university.

University president Randy Lowry mentioned the special feeling that accompanies graduation day.

“There was a day, two, three, four, five, six years ago that was a day of great anticipation, and today, we have the end of that experience – a day of great celebration,” Lowry said.

Areas of degree study ranged from a doctoral degree in Learning Organization and Strategic Change to a bachelor’s degree of Social Work.

During the ceremony, Lipscomb alum David J. Clayton was honored as the Young Alumnus of the Year, while history professor Richard Goode was honored with the Kopio Award.

Associate professor and academic chair of the nutrition department Autumn Marshall led the university’s Alma Mater.

Lumination Photo Editor Whitney Jarreld and regular contributors Ariel Jones and Monaih Sam were among those to receive diplomas.
