Bethel University’s summer and fall 2022 graduates will be recognized during a combined celebration set for Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022, inside Crisp Arena in McKenzie, University leaders announced this week.

While the ceremony will not take place until after the fall semester, degrees will be conferred to qualifying students as they complete their studies. Prospective graduates will receive communication from the registrar of their respective college regarding details about the ceremony, ordering regalia, ticketing and wayfinding.

Dale Henry, founder and president of Your Best Unlimited, has been tapped to deliver the commencement address. Your Best Unlimited is a Tennessee-based company that offers training programs for educational, corporate and government entities.

Commencement ceremonies are among the most important milestones in life, and Bethel takes great pride in its ceremonial traditions.

Bethel University is a private, not-for-profit university affiliated with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church located in McKenzie, Tenn., offering both on-campus and online courses.
