Wilberforce University Announces its Commencement for the Classes of 2020 and 2021 (11366 hits)


This year's commencement ceremony for the nation's first, private HBCU will feature graduates from combined classes. The outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic interrupted the spring semester last year, and the university canceled the scheduled graduation ceremony. This year, Wilberforce University will acknowledge and celebrate the 166 graduates from 2020 and 2021.

Some of the students who were scheduled to walk across the stage and accept their diplomas in May, 2020 will join some of the 2021 graduates on Saturday, May 29th, at 8 am in the university's Gaston Lewis Gymnasium in the Alumni Multiplex.

The prospective alumni will begin their memorable walk from the historic fountain at 7:30, crossing Bickett Rd. to the gym.

Salutatorian Ronald Mathews, from Lorain, Ohio and Valedictorian Talaya Quinn from Minneapolis, Minnesota, both 2021 graduates, will address the graduates.
