The commencement service, to be held in the college’s Mary B. Martin Auditorium located in Seeger Chapel, will include the first graduates of Milligan’s Master of Science in Information Systems program. Over 100 graduates total will receive their degrees.
For graduate Jonathan Miller, Milligan’s “reputation for excellence” and the MSIS program’s cost were part of why he joined the inaugural class.
“Each class in the MSIS program has helped to shape my professional career and my personal life,” the current IT security analyst for Ballad Health said in a news release.
“Milligan has some of the most supportive and understanding instructors. They strive to not only educate and challenge us, but they also motivate and encourage us to believe that we are capable of more than we think.”
Speaking on behalf of this year’s graduating class will be Isaac and Meredith Robinette, of Kingsport. The married couple will graduate together with master’s degrees in business administration.
The ceremony will be broadcast live at www.milligan.edu/streaming.
