Vice President Mike Pence set to be Taylor University commencement speaker

UPLAND, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – Vice President Mike Pence will speak to Taylor University’s graduating class in May.

The former Indiana Governor will speak at Taylor University’s commencement on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 10 a.m. in the Kesler Student Activities Center.

He is a graduate of Hanover College and the Indiana University School of Law. Pence practiced law, led the Indiana Policy Review Foundation, and hosted The Mike Pence Show, a syndicated talk radio show and a weekly television public affairs program in Indiana.

“Taylor University is pleased and honored to welcome to our campus and its 2019 Commencement exercises, Vice President Mike Pence,” said Taylor’s President, Dr. Paul Lowell Haines.

“Mr. Pence has been a good friend to the University over many years, and is a Christian brother whose life and values have exemplified what we strive to instill in our graduates. We welcome the Vice President and his wife, Karen Pence, to this 173-year-old premier institution of Christian higher education, and thank them for their love and service for our nation, our state, and our institution.”

Due to the anticipated larger-than-usual graduating class and the expected crowd, Taylor officials say tickets will be required for admission to the Kesler Center, which will be distributed to members of Taylor’s Class of 2019 and their families.
