Newest WCC grads challenged: 'If you tend your flame, you cannot but set the world ablaze'

On Saturday, May 14th, the thirty-one members of the Class of 2016 completed their four rewarding years at Wyoming Catholic College, received their diplomas (for a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts) and bid farewell to the College community in a solemn yet joyous Commencement ceremony. Commencement, which took place at the Lander Community and Convention Center and marked the end of a weekend of celebrations, featured a Senior Address from Rachel Honrath (a senior from Larchwood, IA who had been selected by her classmates to serve as their spokesperson during the ceremony) and a Commencement Speech from Sr. Regina Marie Gorman, Vicar General of the Carmelite Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Los Angeles.
