WKU Glasgow Graduand Ceremony Dec. 1
WKU Glasgow will host its December 2016 Graduand Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. Thursday (Dec. 1) at the Plaza Theatre, 115 E. Main St. in Glasgow.
Graduand is a term of status referring to a student who has completed his or her studies at the university but not yet graduated in a formal ceremony. The program, which is a precursor to the official commencement ceremony on the Bowling Green campus, will recognize WKU Glasgow students who have completed all requirements for December graduation.
“Graduation is an exciting and important accomplishment for students,” said Dr. Sally Ray, Chancellor of WKU Glasgow. “Some of the students have overcome numerous obstacles to achieve their goal of graduation. We look forward to celebrating this important event with them, their families, and these communities.”
The program will also include student remarks, student awards and Graduand recognition by WKU Provost David Lee. WKU President Gary A. Ransdell will be the keynote speaker.
The Graduand Ceremony will be recorded by the Glasgow Electric Plant Board and aired on EPB Cable6; for details, visit the Glasgow Electric Plant Board at www.glasgowepb.net.
