KINGSBURG – Kingsburg’s Russell Bunting was among nearly 300 students to graduate with May degrees from Concordia University, Nebraska.
Bunting earned a Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science with a minor in biology.
Rev. Dr. R. John Buuck of Germantown, Wisconsin, a 1958 graduate of what was then known as Concordia Teachers College, presented the commencement address. Concordia also presented additional honorary awards and degrees.
In his speech, Buuck told graduates their gifts will not be wasted.
“When God calls you in to your life’s work, he won’t waste your gifts. God’s blessings to you on your way. Make a difference in this world and walk with Jesus all the way.”
