Scene from fall commencement 2011. The service will be held in Rudd Auditorium on the Bryan campus beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Academic Vice President Dr. Bradford Sample said, “Graduation is a special time for the graduates and their families, and a special time for the faculty and administration as well. Since so many of the fall graduates are students in the School of Adult and Graduate Studies they have studied at satellite facilities, so this is an opportunity to have them on campus and get a glimpse of what our traditional students experience.”

Among those expected to graduate are 130 Bachelor’s degree candidates and 29 MBA candidates, Registrar Janet Piatt said.

Speaker for the ceremony will be Dr. Glynn Stone, Jr., senior pastor of Mobberly Baptist Church of Longview, Texas. Dr. Stone is a 1995 graduate of Bryan College with a B.A. degree in biblical studies. He received his Ph.D. in evangelism from the Roy Fish School of Evangelism and Missions at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and has studied church history at Regents Park College, Oxford University in England. He has taught at Dallas Baptist University, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and Shorter University, and has served churches in Georgia, Texas, and Tennessee.
