Cedarville University recently announced the program for its 119th Commencement, which will take place May 2, at 10 a.m.in the Doden Field House.

The traditional program will celebrate the accomplishments of Cedarville's 700 graduates and God's faithfulness to the institution and its students. University president, Dr. Thomas White, will speak at the ceremony and encourage the graduates to continue to know, live, and share the Gospel and to serve with excellence wherever God calls them. 

The Brass Choir will open the event with its prelude, “It is Well,” and will be followed by the processional of students and faculty members. Others participating in the ceremony include Lorne Scharnberg, chairman of the board of trustees (invocation), Dr. Murray Murdoch (scripture reading), Dr. Thomas Cornman (welcome address), Phillip Hord (presenting the senior class gift), and Lori Huckaby (prayer of dedication). Dr. Paul Dixon, chancellor, will close the event with the benediction.

Please be in prayer for our graduates as they embark on their new beginning.
