Friday Ceremony Honors KWU Fall Grads

Todd PittengerDecember 11, 2021

Kansas Wesleyan honored 44 graduates during its annual Fall Graduation Recognition Ceremony, held Friday night in Mabee Arena.

According to the school, Jan Shirk ’17, long-time executive assistant to the president, delivered the evening’s keynote address.

“These graduates have encountered more than most during their university experience,” said Dr. Damon Kraft, KWU provost. “Yes, they have experienced the upheaval and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, but their experience has been more than that. They have been musicians and athletes. Performers and students. Workers and teachers. These graduates, during their time at KWU, have been wonderful examples of the Power of AND. We congratulate them on completing their degrees, and welcome them to the Coyote alumni family.”
