Follow Your Bliss- Westminster’s 2007 Commencement Highlights

May 20, 2007

Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living
is the one you are living.
When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid,
and doors will open
where you didn’t know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.
Joseph Campbell


More than 325 graduates received degrees on Old Main’s Senior Terrace as the sun peaked out on a breezy Saturday afternoon in New Wilmington marking the 153rd commencement for Westminster College. Titan Radio presents highlights online from this year’s graduation ceremonies. The highlights are available here on and on You Tube.

Westminster’s commencement speaker, Dr. Dianne D. Aronian, encouraged each graduate to do as Joseph Campbell wrote and “follow your bliss.” Aronian, a 1962 Westminster graduate and former College trustee and accomplished ophthalmologist, created a program to bring eye care to southern Belize in Central America. The program responded to a health crisis where there was no eye care available to the poor in the region. Aronian noted her work in that program was one of the more recent occasions where she discovered her newest “bliss.” She described her life after her college graduation as a journey of finding her bliss a number of times from medical school and throughout her professional life. She urged the class of 2007 to open themselves up to discover the bliss that will lead them as they leave Westminster.


Six Months After the Explosion: Volunteers Help New Castle Victims

May 11, 2007

Nearly six months after a massive explosion ripped through an East Side neighborhood in New Castle volunteers are working to rebuild one of the demolished homes for a single mother and her two kids. Habitat for Humanity began work this week to construct a home that was destroyed on November 27, 2006. On that day, a blast at a nearby home on Franklin Avenue, fueled by a natural gas leak, tore through the neighborhood injuring four people and damaging more than 30 homes. Now volunteers from several churches have put up the cash and muscle to rebuild one family’s home. Habitat for Humanity organizers says it should take about six months to complete this project. The County Line’s Liz Farry files this report for the TCL blog.
