YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio (WDTN) — Heavy rains force Antioch College’s graduation ceremony indoors.
Twenty-one students received degrees during a ceremony in the South Gym of Antioch’s Wellness Center. Dr. Clarence B. Jones, a celebrated Civil Rights leader, delivered the commencement address to graduates.
It was the first commencement for the school since 2008.
This year’s commencement was part of a larger Reunion weekend. Hundreds of alumni returned to Yellow Springs to reconnect, view the evolution of the College, and celebrate the Class of 2015. This weekend also represents the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s commencement address to the Antioch Class of 1965. Reunion events will continue through Sunday morning.
