Ohio University-Chillicothe students officially joined the ranks of proud Ohio University alumni during the recent Recognition of Graduation event on campus.
The annual event recognizes students who earned associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Ohio University while pursuing their college goals on the Chillicothe Campus.
Keynote speaker Mike Smith urged the graduates to “think outside of the box” and “be willing to learn from unlikely sources.”
Approximately 170 students participated in the graduation ceremony. In all, nearly 440 OU-C students earned their college degrees during the 2015-16 academic year.
Sherry Nelson, a Navy veteran, delivered the Pledge of Allegiance, and Elizabeth Gumm was the student reflection speaker. Local business professional and public servant Jim Caldwell received the Rich Bebee Alumni Leadership Award.
