On Saturday, May 11th, Wyoming Catholic College awarded diplomas to forty-two students during a commencement ceremony at the Lander Community and Convention Center. This is the WCC’s ninth graduating class and the largest to date.
William Eby, a student from Ohio, was this year’s Senior Class Speaker. “During our Freshman year, ” he said, “we learned that a story is not understood until a conclusion. And we do not realize why the middle chapters are important and necessary until we discover what their consequences are at the very end. This graduation is the conclusion of our four-year story, and it gives coherence to our actions. But it is also a continuation. As we go out from here, we must continue our quest for the truth, we must keep the faith, and we must never forget our neighbors along the way. ”
The Commencement Speaker was Bishop David L. Ricken, head of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Green Bay. Ricken was one of Wyoming Catholic Colleges founders, during his time as the Bishop of the Cheyenne, the leader of Wyoming’s Catholics.
Ricken commented on the education and experiences the students have received. “Your mission now is to carry that to others. You must become missionaries of Hope!”
