Radford University celebrated its 2011 Spring Commencement on Saturday, May 7, with President Kyle conferring degrees upon 1,651 undergraduate and 321 graduate students who wore “eco-friendly” gowns for the first time in school history.
“What a glorious day it is,” said Kyle, addressing thousands of sun-soaked graduates and their family and friends on Moffett Lawn. “We are so very proud of you. We have loved having you here with us, but we look forward to welcoming you to the ranks of Radford University alumni.”
Carilion Clinic Chief Operating Officer/Executive Vice President Nancy Howell Agee, a Roanoke Valley leader who has come to know Radford University well as a member of the Board of Visitors since 2003, delivered inspiring remarks as the invited commencement speaker.
