Liberty Athletics Congratulates its 2019 Graduates

Liberty Athletics was well represented at the university's 46th Commencement on Saturday, which included 110 graduating student-athletes.

The class of 2019, a class that included 20,731 graduates, featured 110 Liberty Flames student-athletes. About 8,000 total graduates participated in the ceremonies on campus, which was attended by more than 40,000 people inside Williams Stadium.

United States Vice President Mike Pence served as the keynote speaker during Commencement. Pence brought with him the personal congratulations of the President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump (who gave the first Commencement address of his presidency at Liberty on May 13, 2017) and encouraged the largest graduating class in Liberty's history to seize "a new era of opportunity and optimism" fueled by a growing American economy.

Additionally, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell addressed the graduates, encouraging them to step forth into their careers as leaders and innovators.

Falwell called the 2018-19 academic year one of the university's most successful to date. He highlighted accomplishments in Flames athletics, including its first victory in the NCAA Tournament, the highest bar exam passage rate in Liberty Law history (7th in the nation, alongside Ivy League schools), and Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine exceeding the national match rate for the second year in a row.

Liberty Athletics salutes our graduates, thanking them for their hard work and dedication, both in the classroom and on the athletics field of competition.  As Liberty's graduating student-athletes took part in Commencement, they donned a special cord with their graduation attire, presented to them at last week's Athletics Cord Ceremony.
