Hesston College class of 2017 graduates were encouraged to live their legacies with passion during Commencement exercises on May 14.
Commencement speaker, Dr. Marie (Schuessler) ’79 Morris, delivered the address “How’s My Driving? Everyday Calling and Legacy.” Based on Romans 12:9-13, Dr. Morris encouraged graduates to listen for and respond to God’s calling in their life, whatever it may be, and then to live out that calling to the best of their abilities.
The 2017 celebration marked the college’s first granting of bachelor degrees in 60 years as the first cohort of the bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) students were recognized for completion of the program. The class of 2017 included 17 BSN graduates and 132 associate degree graduates.
