Campbellsville, KY - It was both a Christmas and a Graduate Celebration as members of Campbellsville University's Louisville Education Center came together December 17, 2010 to honor their 23 December graduates in a new building the ownership of which was about 36 hours old.
It was a "family atmosphere," Dr. Michael V. Carter, president, said.
CU-Louisville has purchased a new building, at 2303 Greene Way, Louisville, KY, (MAP), in which to expand their class offerings, and staff members got the building in shape for a potluck dinner and service during which graduates received gifts for graduating.
Dr. Tony Newberry, president and chief executive officer of Jefferson Community and Technical College in Louisville, delivered a keynote address in which he told the graduates the weather outside was bad but inside it was "warm with a spirit of joy in the air."
He told the graduates, "You deserve credit for sticking with your education. It's a challenge to pursue a degree, and each graduate has overcome difficulties."
He cited statistics of employment and higher earning power for the graduates and told them learning is a life-long pursuit.
Newberry said, "There is no greater legacy than to instill and inspire higher education to your family and the nation."
Newberry received the CU Leadership Award for his work with CU that has a "rich tradition of Christian education."
"Education ignites the fire and lifts the promise for so many individuals," he said.
Twenty three graduate, 14 undergraduates and nine graduate, received degrees at the Winter Graduation ceremonies at the Louisville Education Center of Campbellsville University:
