Kisner to Speak at Fall Commencement

Date: December 4, 2014
The Rev. Gerald D. Kisner, pastor of Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in West Palm Beach, will be the featured speaker at Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Fall Commencement at 2 p.m. Saturday, December 13 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The event is open to graduates and guests who hold tickets. More than 200 candidates for bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the West Palm Beach, Orlando and Wellington campuses will participate in the ceremony. Kisner came to the church in 1995 after a distinguished career in education, law and public administration. A Cleveland, Ohio native, he earned a master’s degree in public administration from Case Western Reserve University, a law degree from Harvard University and a Master of Divinity degree from Howard University.

If you are noticing a positive difference along Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach, it’s due to the service work of the Palm Beach Atlantic University Alumni Association. During Homecoming last month, 10 volunteers made time to clean a section of Southern Boulevard near Parker Avenue, which is just south of the Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Athletic Campus.

Through The LeMieux Center Fellows Program, these two upper-level undergraduate students will pursue an independent study of current or emerging public policy issues concerning individual freedoms, values, rights, religious liberties and institutions in the United States. The fellows receive a stipend to cover the cost of an independent study course as well as expenses, such as travel, incurred during the course up to $2,500 as well as ongoing guidance for their research project from former U.S. Senator George LeMieux. The application process included submission of a research proposal, résumé and a letter of support for the research from a faculty mentor. Selection of the fellows was based on the application and an interview.
