Marion, Alabama’s Judson College has announced that Morgan State University President David Wilson, Ed.D., will deliver the commencement address at its June 23rd commencement ceremony being held on the Judson campus. Dr. Wilson, a native of Marengo County, Alabama, also will receive an honorary doctor of humane letters degree.
“We are so thankful that Black Belt native Dr. David Wilson will address the class of 2018 at Judson this year,” said Dr. Scott Bullard, interim president. “Wilson is an academic leader whose personal story of courage and faithfulness should inspire our students to dream big – not only in terms of their personal aspirations but in terms of the positive impact that a life well lived can have on other people. From Alabama to Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. Wilson’s vision for higher education in America – which is drawn not only from his innovative spirit but also from his deep roots in rural Alabama – has changed the lives of so very many young people for the better.”
Since 1838, Judson College has been committed to preparing young women for lives of purpose through the transmission of knowledge, the refinement of intellect, the nurturing of faith, the promotion of service, and the development of character. A private, four-year, Christian college with degree programs in liberal arts and the sciences, Judson College helps each student reach her full potential by providing her with opportunities to engage her mind, practice her faith, and live her purpose.
