Convocation weekend is always bustling with excitement and activity here at Crandall University and this year was no exception. In fact, this year’s Fall Convocation was one of our largest Fall Ceremonies to date with a total of 120 Fall graduates.
If you were unable to attend or simply curious about the goings-on around campus over a Convocation weekend, read more about the events below:
Crandall University Leadership Award
Dr. William Morrison
The Fall 2022 Leadership Award Recipient and Convocation Speaker was Dr. William Morrison, a Clinical Psychologist and former Associate Professor at Crandall University as well as an Associate and Full Professor at the University of New Brunswick and the Founder and Executive/Co-executive Director of the Health and Education Research Group based in Fredericton.
Aside from teaching psychology at Atlantic Baptist University from 1995 to 2007, Dr. Morrison also has other ties to the school as he is the son of two former United Baptist Bible Training School employees who served from 1950 until 1962.
While Dr. Morrison had many wise and powerful words to share, his key message revolved around what he called the three G’s: gratitude, grace, and generosity. Dr. Morrison’s speech explained how each are key traits that can be a great help during life’s various trials.
Post Convocation Reception
Following Convocation, graduates, families, and friends gathered in Stutlz Hall for cake, punch, and plenty of photos. This was a special treat for all graduates, since it was the first Convocation Reception since the pandemic.
