MILLIGAN, Tenn. (Dec. 1, 2021) — Milligan University will hold its fall commencement ceremony on Friday, Dec. 10, at 7:00 p.m. in the Mary B. Martin Auditorium in Seeger Memorial Chapel.

The university has a tradition of featuring graduates rather than a commencement speaker.  Ryan Kent, receiving a Bachelor of Science in child and youth development, and Taylor Logan, receiving a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, will speak in response to the institutional charge. Andre Levarity, receiving a Bachelor of Science in chemistry and math, will read scripture. Jordan Frasure, receiving a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy, will provide the invocation, and Cali Weddle, receiving a Bachelor of Science in music business, will provide the closing prayer.

Dr. Christy Isbell, program director and area chair of the Occupational Therapy program, also will be speaking on behalf of the Milligan faculty to deliver the renewal of the institutional charge.     

A total of 95 degrees will be awarded. The graduates include 36 receiving a bachelor’s degree. 56 are receiving master’s degrees in business, counseling, education, humanities, information systems, or occupational therapy. Three graduates are receiving the Doctor of Education.
