JACKSONVILLE — Thirty-eight students received their associate of arts degree during a May 10 commencement ceremony at Jacksonville College, a two-year liberal arts college owned and operated by the Baptist Missionary Association of Texas. More than 1,000 people packed the Curtis Carroll Field House for the event, for which JC alumnus Steve Cowart served as keynote speaker. Cowart, pastor of Eighth Avenue Baptist Church of Teague, also had a personal tie to the Spring 2013 graduating class: His son, Corey, was among those who matriculated.
