Corinne Rene Strong, of Midland, has graduated from Campbellsville University.

“A great place to start your journey today is with love.”

Dr. Donna Hedgepath, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Campbellsville University, shared this advice as she gave the address at two of Campbellsville University’s three commencement ceremonies Dec. 9 in Ransdell Chapel.

Hedgepath emphasized “legacy” and “love” in her two addresses. Legacy is often considered something that is left behind, but she said, “How about ‘Our legacy is now!’”

Dr. Jeanette Parker, dean of the faculty and associate vice president for academic affairs, read the names of the graduates at the 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. ceremonies. Hedgepath and Dr. Nagamani Palla, instructor in computer science and lead professor of BA 500, read the names in the 6 p.m. ceremony.
