42nd Annual Commencement

July 23, 2013

Family and friends rejoiced with graduates at MNU’s 42nd annual commencement ceremonies May 11-12. The university held two ceremonies: one for Professional & Graduate Studies May 11, and one for Traditional Undergraduate Studies May 12.

MNU President David J. Spittal spoke at the Professional & Graduate Studies commencement, and Dr. Elmer L. Gillett, senior pastor of Community Worship Center Church of the Nazarene in Brooklyn, N.Y., spoke at the Traditional Undergraduate Studies ceremony.

Special awards were distributed during the ceremonies. Dr. Ruth (Gleason ’81) Waggoner, principal of Heatherstone Elementary School in Olathe, Kan., received the Robert I. Brower Award for her excellence as an adjunct professor in the Master of Education program. Traditional seniors Marshall Cloud (’13), a biology major from San Diego, Calif., and Chelsea Coffey (’13), an organizational leadership major from Wynne, Ark., received the American Heritage Award, MNU’s highest non-academic undergraduate award.
