York College held a ceremony on December 16 to recognize the accomplishments of 73 students who completed the requirements for graduation after the fall semester. 

President Sam Smith welcomed more than 200 guests to the ceremony held in the Bartholomew Performing Arts Center. The ceremony marked a momentous occasion as fifty-seven graduates received their master’s degrees, the largest graduate study class in the college’s history. 

Alumnus Darrel J. Sears (‘01), offered students words of wisdom and encouragement as the commencement speaker. Sears encouraged the graduates to celebrate their accomplishments all while placing their worth in the loving arms of God not life’s milestones.
