Salisbury, North Carolina - May 14, 2024 - Hood Theological Seminary proudly announces Senior Bishop Kenneth Monroe, Bishop of the Eastern North Carolina Episcopal District and the South Atlantic Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church (A.M.E.Z.), as the commencement speaker for the Class of 2024.

The commencement ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 18, at Varick Auditorium on the campus of Livingstone College (701 West Monroe Street, Salisbury, NC). The ceremony will commence promptly at 10:30 a.m.

Bishop Kenneth Monroe's esteemed leadership in the Eastern North Carolina Episcopal and the South Atlantic Episcopal Districts makes him an ideal choice to address the graduating class, said Hood Theological President Vergel Lattimore.
