Commencement 50-Year March

Four alumni celebrating the 50-year commencement marchMembers from the Class of 1966 were invited to participate in their 50 Year March and lead the Class of 2016 to the Point for graduation on Saturday, May 28, 2016. Those participating are (from left): Cookie Howard Vargo, Dennis Wilson, Barbara Lindsey Bergdolt and Emily McKeand Campbell.

In 2012, Hanover College began a tradition of inviting its alumni to march at Commencement on the 50th anniversary of their graduation, wearing caps and gowns, to lead the graduating class onto The Point.

As you know, Commencement Day at Hanover College is a time of great pageantry and rejoicing, much of it representing traditions that are centuries old. On this day, all graduates gather and show the true legacy of Hanover College and its contributions to each person's life. Four years of college experiences are celebrated in one ceremony and memories will be preserved for a lifetime.

After participating in her 50 Year March, Janis Small '64 wrote:

"As one of the returning members of the Class of ’64, being asked to lead the graduating class into Hanover’s 181st Commencement was most certainly a special moment in my life. But even more special was the opportunity to return to the campus during the splendor of May and to share with my classmates our many memories of our time at Hanover."
