CHICAGO, IL (December 17, 2004)  – A total of 179 degrees were awarded during  the Winter Commencement Convocation at North Park University last Friday  evening, which also marked the last official event for President David  G. Horner who is leaving his position.

Both Horner and his wife, Sue, were recognized for their service to the  university. Both were presented with honorary alumnus awards by Charles  Peterson, dean of academic affairs, and Horner was presented with a  certificate from Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley who proclaimed December  11, 2004, as David Horner Day in Chicago, honoring the president for his  loyal service during the past 18 years.

The university awarded 84 graduate degrees, 38 Bachelor of Arts, 16  Bachelor of Science, two Bachelor of Music, and 39 Bachelor of General  Studies degrees. Adam London, a part of Alaska Christian College’s first  graduating class (2002), was among the North Park graduates this winter  and is the first Alaska Christian College graduate to go on and complete  an undergraduate degree.

Located in Chicago, North Park University is a Christian liberal arts  university that serves 2,800 undergraduate and graduate students from  around the country and the world. Within a diverse, close-knit urban  community, North Park offers a values-based education to students  through more than 30 undergraduate majors and an adult degree completion  program, as well as graduate and continuing education in business,  nonprofit management, nursing, education, community development, music  and theology. By integrating faith with learning – as it has done since  its founding in 1891 by the Evangelical Covenant Church – North Park  continues to focus on the important task of preparing students for lives  of significance and service.
