Three Receive Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree at LMU Winter Commencement
Three degree candidates from the Lincoln Memorial University Duncan School of Law (LMU Law) had Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) degrees conferred upon them at Lincoln Memorial University’s (LMU) Winter Commencement Exercises on Saturday, Dec. 12. Due to the pandemic the ceremony was held in a virtual format.
LMU President Clayton Hess conferred the degrees of Tyler Clay Collins (Marion, Kentucky), Bradley A. Prewitt (Williamsburg, Kentucky) and Kathleen Maynard Reed (Chattanooga, Tennessee).
Dr. Belle Wheelan, the president of the Souther Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, gave the virtual commencement address. She shared five pieces of wisdom that have helped her throughout her career. “If you think you are finished learning, you are wrong. You may never attend another formal class or write another term paper or research another project,” she said. “But you will be provided with opportunities to learn as you go through life. Embrace those opportunities.”
The newly minted J.D.s are eligible to sit for the next administration of the bar exam, set for February 2021. LMU Law will hold its May Commencement Exercises on Thursday, May 13, 2021, in Knoxville.
