ABC Graduation: Class of 2010
May 19, 2010
The eleventh class graduated from Ambassador Bible Center on Sunday, May 16. The Class of 2010 entered the hall to the upbeat music of “Pomp and Circumstance.” They were led by monitor Sarah Bates of the Class of 2007. Gary Antion welcomed the assembled guests and gave the invocation. Matthew Miller, the class president, gave the student address and rehearsed some of the experiences of the class from the past nine months. He urged the students not to forget what they learned at ABC and to put the information to good use.
After Ken Shoemaker directed the ABC Chorale (which sang two beautiful songs), David Register, director of education programs, delivered the graduation address. He stressed the importance of godly character and of putting into practice what they, “The Amazing Class of 2010” have learned at ABC.
The award ceremony followed the graduation address. Mr. Register presented Megan Brown, Daryn Campbell and Brandon Krueger each an Ambassador Award of Excellence. Darris McNeely, of the Council of Elders, gave the Council Service Award to Caleb Creech and Anna Helterbrand.
Forty and one-half diplomas in Biblical Studies were presented to the graduates. The one-half was Calvin Creech, son of Caleb and Valerie Creech. He is just four months old. He came with his parents to class daily, so a small diploma was presented to him.
After a hearty round of applause for the graduates, Ralph Levy gave the benediction. All were welcomed to share in cake and beverages to help celebrate this special occasion.
Thanks go to Ina McLemore, Jorge and Kathy de Campos, Clint Porter, Peter Eddington, Michelle de Campos and their staff for all the food, decorations and set-up for the event.
