Central has just completed the spring semester, culminating in commencement this past weekend. Faith has become sight, and our graduates are rising into a hopeful future. We honored two distinguished Christian leaders as we conferred upon them Doctor of Divinity honoris causa. Recently there has been a bit of a flap over whether or not a university should offer an honorary degree to President Obama. The question was whether he had a sufficient “body of work” to merit the honor. There was no such debate about Dr. Thawesak Mahachavarojn and Dr. Daniel L. Buttry.
Dr. Thawesak Mahachavarojn, of
Dr. Daniel L. Buttry, Global Consultant for Peace and Justice with International Ministries of
Central is privileged to recognize these remarkable world Christians. Surely it is fitting to recognize where honor is due.
