Speaking about the importance of symbolize in our society, Glanzer recognized the regalia the faculty wore as a symbol of their commitment to learning and education. “They also happen to love you, care deeply about you and desire to form Christ’s character in you,” he said. Norman Hope, vice president of business and finance, gave the address, titled “Walking by Faith.” Glanzer said, “Our academic convocation is one of two times a year our faculty dress in regalia, recognizing their commitment to our students and the college.”
