ON WE GO! – May 16, 2018
Submitted on May 16, 2018
Many Georgetown alumni and friends remember the 1980’s TV action series, ‘The A-Team,’ and its band of characters led by Colonel John ‘Hannibal’ Smith, portrayed by George Peppard. As you may recall, Hannibal was famous for the line, “I love it when a plan comes together.”
The Georgetown College Graduation ceremony this past weekend was an example of a time when all on campus were united in “loving it” – because the plan definitely came together! After weeks of preparation involving our staff, faculty, and students, we were able to conduct what I daresay was one of the most beautiful graduation ceremonies found anywhere in the U.S. Set on the historic “Giddings Lawn,” with God’s blessing of gorgeous weather - including a healthy breeze on a warm Spring morning - 171 undergraduate and 99 graduate students received with great joy their well-earned degrees. Along with family and friends - who were thrilled to be outside for the event - we enjoyed one of the finest of days.
Thank you, Georgetown College personnel for bringing the plan together. Thank you, families and friends for traveling to be with us. And lastly, heartiest congratulations to the GC Class of 2018!
On We Go!
