LR recognizes special group of seniors in commencement ceremonies


The first week in May, Lenoir-Rhyne University will hold in-person commencement ceremonies recognizing the classes of 2020 and 2021.

"Being able to recognize our graduating seniors with a dedicated, in-person ceremony in a safe manner is important to us, and we are happy to be able to honor them in this way," said Lenoir-Rhyne President Dr. Fred Whitt. "They've worked tremendously hard for this achievement. Our Class of 2020 graduates, in particular, have been patient and understanding given the restrictions of the pandemic, and we are finally able to celebrate them."

Lenoir-Rhyne University is grieving the loss of one of our student-athletes. Omari Alexander, a 19-year-old sophomore from Concord, North Carolina and member of the LR football team, was killed overnight on November 20 in an off-campus incident in Hickory.
