Virginia Theological Seminary celebrated its 184th Commencement Ceremony this morning. Here are a few photos:
Above is a shot with my student Joe Hensley and his family. Joe was awarded the Ford Chair, a gift of Susan Ford to a member of the graduating class who has exhibited a strong commitment to the community life and mission of the Seminary.
This next shot (above) is with my student Elizabeth Felicetti, who was awarded this year's Tachau Memorial Biblical Languages Prize, given in recognition of academic excellence and proficiency in the study of the Biblical languages of Hebrew and Greek.
And this last shot is with my student Bingham Powell, who did an honors thesis with me this semester on the book of Jonah. At commencement, Bingham won the St. George’s College Prize for study at St. George’s College in Jerusalem.
