Northwest University’s 2014 Commencement Ceremony

Northwest University’s 2014 Commencement Ceremony

Northwest University held its 2014 Commencement Ceremony on May 10 at Overlake Christian Church in Redmond, Washington.

The event was a celebration of the 2014 graduates as well as the university’s 10,000th graduate.

Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Leadership Conference and senior pastor of New Christian Worship Center in Sacramento, California, was this year’s commencement speaker. It was a pleasure to have Rev. Rodriguez at commencement, inspiring this new class of NU graduates to “be light and change the world!”

To the graduating class of 2014: we are extremely proud of you and your many accomplishments here at Northwest University. We cannot wait to see where the Lord leads you next. Congratulations—you did it!
