Students across the state of Iowa walked across the stage to receive their degrees this weekend.
But a local university had a special honorary guest speaker.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds spoke to the graduating class of about 300 at Briar Cliff, Saturday morning.
Governor Reynolds is a recent graduate herself, going back to Iowa State University, and receiving her degree a year and a half ago.
The governor also received an honorary degree from BCU for her contributions to education at all levels in Iowa.
The first students from the doctor of physical therapy and doctor of nursing practice programs graduated Saturday.
