An estimated 90 graduates will receive their diplomas Saturday, May 7, as Williams Baptist College holds its 2016 commencement exercises. The graduation ceremony begins at 10 a.m. in WBC’s Southerland-Mabee Center.
The commencement speaker will be Dr. Heather Moore, a 2003 WBC graduate who is a medical doctor at UAMS in Little Rock. She is also a member of the Williams Board of Trustees.
WBC’s Golden Eagles, alumni who attended Williams 50 or more years ago, will also be honored at the ceremony. As has become tradition at the Williams commencement exercises, the Golden Eagles will march in with this year’s graduates.
The graduation ceremony is open to the public.
Williams is a four-year, liberal arts college at Walnut Ridge.
