BLUFFTON — Bluffton University celebrated the achievements of the class of 2020 during a socially distanced commencement at the football stadium on Saturday. The ceremonies were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
More than 80% of the graduating class and up to two guests each were in attendance for the delayed event.
Dr. David Yost, a 1983 Bluffton graduation who is a physician and CDC consultant on Indian Health Service and infectious disease and public health projects, was the commencement speaker.
Yost reminded graduates that mentors at Bluffton “have given you guidance. They helped you, they’ve helped your parents and they’ve helped your friends.”
