University Celebrates Midyear Commencement
Saint Louis University celebrated the achievements and successes of the University's newest alumni Dec. 13 during the annual Midyear Commencement in Chaifetz Arena.
Rich McClure, president of UniGroup Inc. and CEO of both United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit, served as the commencement speaker. McClure and his wife, Sharon, appeared on the CBS reality show Undercover Boss in 2011. McClure told graduates to be authentic in their professional and personal lives.
Graduates also heard from Interim University President William R. Kauffman, J.D., who encouraged them to embrace change and to "say yes" to both the opportunities and challenges ahead.
David Meconi, S.J., assistant professor of theological studies, offered the invocation for the ceremony. Paul Stark, S.J., vice president for Mission and Ministry, closed the event with a benediction.
