Judson University celebrated 128 students who graduated during its 82nd commencement exercise at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday at Herrick Chapel on the Elgin campus.

The commencement address was presented by Gillian Stewart-Wells, Judson's provost and chief academic officer. "Your gifts have been developed and now it is up to you to present them (to the world), not for fame or for distinctions, but because gifts are meant to be shared," she said.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Several students were honored, including Business Administration graduate Jennifer Roversi of Elgin, who received the President's Scholar Award, and Master of Education in Literacy graduate Kylie Smith of Elgin received the Road to Damascus Award. Andrew Burless of Campton Hills received the Adoniram Judson Leadership in Ministry Award.
