More than 400 students were awarded diplomas from Lipscomb University this fall, including eight women from the Tennessee Prison for Women.
The traditional students’ graduation ceremony took place in Allen Arena on December 16, while the graduating inmates’ ceremony was the day before at the Tennessee Prison for Women.
President Randy Lowry gave the charge to the students at the traditional students’ graduation ceremony.
“As you go, take these thoughts with you: you go as part of the Bison herd that numbers about 30,000 alumni; you go as part of a special community that will always respect you, always welcomes you back and always be honored and proud that you a part of it; you go with our deep regard and our great hope that God will work out His plan for your life and that you will see your part in His story.”
President Lowry closed with an Old Testament blessing from Numbers 6:24-26: “May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord’s face shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace.”
