On Saturday, friends and families of Lincoln Christian University students packed the ground floor and balcony areas of the Earl C. Hargrove Chapel to standing room only. The occasion was the 69th annual commencement. Dr. Keith Ray welcomed everyone expressing sentiment of the occasion as an exciting moment when grads are transitioning into new lives. He added that he had that same feeling also as he said, "I am commencing with you." This was his last official exercise as president of the university.
