Invoking the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Palm Beach Atlantic University commencement speaker and King scholar Dr. Terriel Byrd challenged graduates on Saturday to live in accordance with the University's theme for this academic year, Engagement Empowers. Dr. Byrd, who serves as professor of urban Christian ministry and coordinator of the evening ministry program at PBA, said that according to Dr. King, there are three dimensions of any complete life: length, breadth and height. "To truly be empowered, you must be engaged on three levels," Dr. Byrd told the nearly 200 graduates and the hundreds of family members, friends and guests in attendance. The first dimension of life involves one’s own well-being, he said. "You can’t love others unless you love yourself," Dr. Byrd said. "This is the dimension of life in which individuals are concerned with developing inner power, with which one pursues the personal ends and ambitions."
