Seventeen students were awarded degrees in Beeson Divinity School's spring service of commencement and consecration. Dr. John Upton, president of the Baptist World Alliance, challenged the graduates to maintain a proper sense of who they are according to Scripture (his message is available here).
Each of the 17 graduates received a copy of the Holy Scriptures along with their diploma. Additionally, a Bible in honor of each student was donated to members of the Quechua tribe in Peru.
