CAMPBELLSVILLE – Dr. Michael V. Carter, president of Campbellsville University, told 202 undergraduate and graduate students in two winter commencement ceremonies in Ransdell Chapel to live by fellowship, leadership and scholarship – words on the university seal.
In his charge to the graduates, Carter reminded them to live in harmony with others. “Our civil society depends on it,” he said.
He told the graduates that leaders are those who empower those around them to do greater things than they think possible. He also said the graduates may have seven-10 jobs or occupations in their lives, and they must commit to scholarship to learn how to adapt to change. “Your learning has just begun,” he said. “Go forth and make a difference.”
Among the graduates to hear Dr. Carter’s message was Amanda Jo Hines of Eubank. Hines received a Bachelor of Social Work degree.
Darryl Peavler, director of alumni relations, a two-time graduate of Campbellsville University, welcomed the graduates into the CU Alumni Association, which has over 13,000 graduates.
He charged the graduates to complete three tasks: to display their diploma; help recruit students and help continue a trend of record-setting enrollment; and make a gift in support of the university.
“Please know Campbellsville University is very proud of you,” he said.
Campbellsville is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 4,500 students offering over 80 programs of study. The school website is campbellsville.edu.
