Commencement 2014

Commencement 2014

Grove City College granted degrees to 585 students on May 17 at the College’s 134th Commencement.
 
The College also granted honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree to former Florida Gov. John E. “Jeb” Bush, who delivered the Commencement Address, speaking on “America’s Promise in Uncertain Times,” and an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree to Dr. Ron Moore, senior pastor of The Bible Chapel who addressed graduates at the Baccalaureate service on Friday night.
 
Bush, giving his only commencement speech of the season, hailed Grove City College and offered up some advice to the class of 2014. He told graduates that the world has changed rapidly in their lifetime and will continue to do so. He urged them to embrace change -- in most cases: “Always keep the courage to remain true to your convictions and your faith.”
