Ivy Tech Community College’s Fort Wayne Campus will celebrate its annual commencement ceremony Friday and will graduate 1,043 students in Fort Wayne and award 1,291 credentials, including degrees and certificates. This year marks Ivy Tech Fort Wayne’s 48th annual commencement.
The graduation speaker will be Brandon Krontz, who is earning his associate degree in criminal justice.
“I lived in a homeless shelter for veterans when I first started going to Ivy Tech,” Krontz wrote in his speaker application. “I decided in 2014 that I wanted a different and better life. I have been clean and sober since Sept. 18, 2014.”
Krontz, whose blended family with his wife includes seven children, is a Dean’s List student and graduates with a 3.2 GPA.
Graduates and guests will be encouraged to follow along with graduation on social media with #IvyTechGrad on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
