Winter undergraduate commencement rescheduled for Feb. 27: The Winter Commencement program that was postponed due to severe winter weather is re-scheduled for this Saturday, February 27 in the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center. The speaker for both ceremonies is local TV reporter Chuck Rhodes.
Rhodes, after 35 years of forecasting weather at WHTM-TV in Harrisburg, ended his forecasting career in May and began working as a feature reporter noted for his "Out & About" series that focuses on interesting people and programs in the region. A native of Lewistown, he served four years in the United States Navy until his discharge in 1970. He attended Shippensburg University where he met his wife of 37 years, Carol, a 1971 Shippensburg graduate. He later earned a degree in radio-television broadcasting from the Pennsylvania State University.
The University acknowledges that the cancellation of the December 19 program was a disappointment, and hope this special ceremony will provide graduates with an opportunity to share their achievements with their family and friends.
BEST WISHES, GRADS.. have a wonderful upcoming weekend!
