San Antonio campus sets commencement ceremony for June 14

SAN ANTONIO – Wayland Baptist University expects to confer 119 degrees during the San Antonio campus' 84th commencement ceremony, which is set for 1:30 p.m. on Friday, June 14 at Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio.

Dr. D. Glenn Simmons, Executive Director/Dean for the San Antonio campus, will present the candidates for degrees to Dr. David Bishop, Vice President for External Campuses, who will confer degrees. He will be assisted by Dr. Linda Flores, Assistant Dean for the San Antonio campus.

Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Calvert, Pct. 4, will deliver the commencement address. Michael Hart, pastor of Spirit Filled Family Church, will give the invocation.

 Candidates for graduation include three students scheduled to receive doctoral degrees, 42 students set to receive master’s degrees, 65 students to receive bachelor’s degrees, and nine to receive associate’s degrees.

 “Half of the students set to walk across the stage to get their diplomas are age 40 or older,” said Dr. Simmons. “They juggled work, family, church, social events, and school. They did not do this alone. Through the help of spouses, family, friends, and coworkers, they refused to yield to the demands and surged ahead. These are our academic heroes, and, at graduation, we honor their diligence, patience, and tenacity.”
