This year 30 students will graduate with an MLC master’s degree – 29 from our Master of Science in Education program and one from our Master of Science in Educational Administration program. Of these, 27 will walk in our graduation ceremony. As they walk the stage to receive their diplomas, they will be an example of faithful service for those receiving their bachelor’s degrees and an inspiration for all current master’s degree students.

We thank God for their dedication and pray the Lord uses their professional development and commitment for the building up of his kingdom. This year’s graduates are . . .
