Following countless tests, papers and projects, Marietta College’s Class of 2018 received a new assignment from commencement speaker, Donald G. Ritter ’81, on Sunday afternoon.
Four years ago, students from across the country and the world converged on this quaint little river city to begin a truly remarkable journey.
It would seem that someone as accomplished as Don Ritter ’81 couldn’t be flabbergasted.
However, that’s exactly what happened when Marietta College President William N. Ruud asked Ritter to deliver the commencement address to nearly 250 graduates on May 6th in the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center.
The Baccalaureate Service is scheduled from 2:00-3:00 p.m., Saturday, May 5th, in the Alma McDonough Auditorium. No tickets or reservations are required for this event. Academic regalia and procession are not part of the Baccalaureate Service. Dr. and Mrs. Ruud will host a family reception immediately following the service.
