Bryan College welcomed its newest group of graduates on Saturday as the Class of 2017 turned their tassels and walked the stage to receive their hard-earned diplomas. 

Christian author, Ken Ham, served as the ceremony’s featured speaker and received an honorary doctoral degree from Bryan College in science. Dr. Ham serves as the president of Answers in Genesis as well as founder of the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky. 

“During Commencement, Ken Ham delivered a powerful challenge for Bryan graduates to be over-comers and well-diggers enabling the water of life to quench the spiritual barrenness of our culture,” said Dr. Stephen Livesay, president of Bryan College. “It was an honor to present the man I consider the foremost spokesman in the world for biblical Creationism with a Doctor of Science degree from Bryan.” 

In total, the morning ceremony honored 101 undergraduate students. The school held a ceremony later in the day to honor 67 graduates from its Adult and Graduate Studies programs. 

The College also honored members of the Class of 1967 to commemorate their 50 year reunion as part of an annual “Golden Grads” tradition during commencement ceremonies.

The good news is that there are county funds ... (click for more)
