Lipscomb University celebrated its 2017 graduating class by giving 545 undergraduate degrees to students on Saturday afternoon in Allen Arena.
Three professors received “Outstanding Teacher Awards” — Lee Camp, Professor of Bible, Elisabeth Conway, Associate Professor of Biology, and Ruth Henry, Professor of Exercise Science.
For his closing remarks to the graduating class, President Lowry spoke of what it means to be a Lipscomb alum.
“The reality is that we, as this group, will never gather together again,” Lowry said. “But you will go out as a Bison and join the other 35,000 Bison who are out there. You will run into them literally all over the world, and I want you to know that as you do that, you will take the spirit of this community with you, and you will meet the spirit of this community as you find your fellow alums wherever they might be.”
