LeTourneau University awarded diplomas Saturday to 372 graduates during morning and afternoon ceremonies in the S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center.
Keynote Speaker Albert Erisman challenged the graduates to consider their talents and their work as a “sacred trust” and not a job.
Erisman is the executive in residence at Seattle University, where he teaches business ethics. He retired from a 32- year career at Boeing, where he was director of research and development for computing and mathematics.
“Be a mentor and find a mentor,” Erisman addressed the students.
“Acknowledge that it is God you are working for. Live a life of holiness and integrity. And keep learning. We call this event a commencement for a reason,” he told the graduating class. “It is an amazing world you are entering.”
