Fidgeting with his graduation gown and ceremonial hood, Benjamin Brouhaud wiped the sweat from his forehead and straightened his cap.
In less than an hour, Brouhaud, who is from the Ivory Coast of Africa, would graduate from Anderson University with his master’s in finance, which he said would put him one step closer to his real dream.
“I’m trying to own my own business and now I think I can do it in two to three years,” he said.
Anderson University recently announced that Susan Ellspermann, Lieutenant Governor of Indiana, will address the graduating class of 2014 during commencement exercises on Saturday, May 10. The 3 p.m. EDT program will be conducted in the Ward Fieldhouse of the Kardatzke Wellness Center. Speaking during Anderson University’s baccalaureate service will be Dr. David Markle, senior pastor of Park Place Church of God in Anderson, Ind.
For the past four years, Anderson University has been helping pastors of small churches receive the financial means to begin their seminary journey. During the 2010-2011 academic year, the Anderson University School of Theology (SOT) applied for and received a $5,000 grant that allowed them to help one pastor each year begin his or her seminary education online. Once awarded to a recipient, the Chatlos scholarship pays for nearly an entire year of online education.
