Baylor University will confer degrees upon more than 600 students during summer commencement at 10 a.m. Saturday Aug. 14, at the Ferrell Special Events Center.

Baylor President Robert B. Sloan Jr. will give the traditional charge to students and present diplomas to approximately 373 undergraduate students, 11 seminary students and about 249 graduate students, including 23 doctoral candidates.

Greetings will be brought by Will D. Davis, vice chair of the Baylor Board of Regents. Dr. Ann Williamson Karaffa, emeritus professor of curriculum and instruction, will act as bearer of the mace.

The Baylor Alumni Association also will present the Price Daniel Distinguished Public Service Award to Sen. David Sibley, a Baylor alumnus and current member of the Board of Regents. The award honors those who served or are currently serving in an elected or appointed local, state or national office, and whose record in public life best exemplifies the spirit of selfless dedication to public service.
