To the families of our graduating seniors:

As a family member of an upcoming Kentucky Wesleyan College graduate, we consider you part of our “Wesleyan Family.” We want you to be part of our 2015 commence- ment activities leading up to May 9, 2015 when degrees are awarded and diplomas presented.

There will be a number of truly significant events during our final week of the school year to celebrate our graduates and their achievements.

We hope that you are able to join the rest of the Wesleyan family for these events as they will be more special with you a part of them. These are storied Wesleyan traditions and they create memories that last forever.

It is always a significant event in our world when we graduate another class from Kentucky Wesleyan. The “Wesleyan Way” that bonds our students together while they are here also helps make them uniquely prepared for not only personal success, but it has also prepared them to change the world around them in so many
positive ways.

We are proud of what each of our students have done here at Kentucky Wesleyan, and we are certainly excited about what they will do after graduating. Kentucky Wesleyan College is a special place, and it is even more special now because of this graduating class. We look forward to having you share in this historic celebration
of the Class of 2015, our 147th graduating class.

Yours Truly,

Barton D. Darrell, J.D.
