The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and will be held in the Gillis Gym inside the Snooks Student Activities Center. Doors will open at 9 a.m.


Commencement speaker for the 2009 graduates is Dr. Carolyn G. Bishop, president of Consortium for Global Education (CGE). She supports the international efforts of CGE’s 45 American colleges and universities and their 241 overseas partnerships in more than 80 countries. CGE was founded in 1987.

“Dr. Carolyn Bishop is a model leader,” said Dr. David R. Smith, BPC President. “Few American leaders in higher education are as widely known or deeply respected as Dr. Bishop. Her inspirational story and remarkable career will allow her to comment on our graduates’ future with international insight. Brewton-Parker College is fortunate to have her as our 2009 commencement speaker.”
