President Brower's Message to the Graduating Class of 2017
Dear Member of the Graduating Class,
Congratulations to you and the Class of 2017! Commencement is a significant milestone in your life and your accomplishments! Please accept my sincere best wishes and hopes for you and your future.
I'm confident that as you leave PLNU you will be well prepared for your next step – whether that is starting your career or continuing your studies. It is my prayer that the education you have received and your PLNU experiences here helped you grow intellectually, spiritually, and personally. It's my hope that you will use your gifts to express your faith through a lifetime of service to God and others wherever you find yourself. The world needs people like you, committed to make a difference.
As you begin these next steps in your life’s journey, remember, you will always have a home and family here at PLNU. In your future, I hope you will stay connected to the university, to the professors who have mentored you, and to the friends with whom you have shared this time. The relationships you've established during your PLNU time will have lasting importance.
May these words be true of you and the class of 2017 throughout your lives. “First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world,” Romans 1:8.
God’s blessings to you on this day of celebration and for all of your future!
Bob Brower, Ph.D.
