WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind (WLFI)—61 future educators from Purdue walked across the stage in Loeb Playhouse in Stewart Center today.
Each student received a lapel pin and a copy of the Teacher's Creed.
This event welcomes the graduates into the teaching profession.
200 students will graduate with Education degrees this year.
The keynote speaker this year was alumnus Jeff Butts, superintendent of Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township in Indianapolis.
Graduate Dalton Daily said he is ready to make a difference one student at a time.
“It feels great you know at Purdue it's such a rigorous program and we don't shy away from that,” said Daily. “That if you come here you come to work. And so it feels good to finally get that done and reach the finish line."
