HPU presents Commencement ceremony this Saturday

 Howard Payne University will hold its spring Commencement ceremony this Saturday, May 11, beginning at 10:00 a.m. at the Brownwood Coliseum. The coliseum is located at 500 E. Baker Street in Brownwood.

Dr. Cory Hines, president, and other university representatives will confer the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Delivering the charge to the graduates is Robert Morrison, member of HPU’s Board of Trustees and retired educator from Abilene.

The Commencement ceremony will be preceded on Friday, May 10, by Chime Out, an HPU tradition in which graduating seniors pass a chain of ivy to underclassmen, representing the passing of authority, responsibility and privileges to students who remain on campus to carry on the traditions of the university. Chime Out begins at 6:00 p.m. at HPU’s Mims Auditorium.
