Graduation Set for Saturday


Dr. Bruce Swihart

Dr. Bruce Swihart will deliver the address to graduates Saturday, May 7, as Williams Baptist College holds its baccalaureate and commencement exercises. The ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. in WBC’s Southerland-Mabee Center.

Flooding across northeast Arkansas has not affected the Williams campus.  Graduation and all activities leading up to it will proceed as scheduled.

Swihart is pastor of Barcelona Road Baptist Church in Hot Springs Village, Ark., where he has served since 2007. He has also worked on several other church staffs in Arkansas and Texas, including East Side Baptist in Paragould, Ark., where he was pastor from 1991 to 1995.

He will be recognized during the ceremony as WBC’s Distinguished Baptist Minister for 2011, and he will then bring the baccalaureate address.

Over 90 graduates are expected to receive their degrees during the ceremony. Williams combines its baccalaureate and commencement programs.
