(ANGOLA) - Thanks to an improving weather forecast, officials at Trine University have decided to move Saturday's commencement back outside. It will be held at Zollner Stadium as originally scheduled starting at 10:00am. A university press release issued on Wednesday indicated commencement was going to be inside of Hershey Hall because showers were in the forecast for Saturday. But the National Weather Service forecast for Saturday is now calling for partly sunny skies and highs in the low 60's. This will be the second straight year Trine's commencement will be held outside.

Grammy Award winner Lee Greenwood will perform the national anthem and his well-known song "God Bless the U.S.A." on Saturday morning during the university's commencement. Greenwood will perform Friday night during a private concert in the T. Furth Center for Performing Arts. The center will be dedicated during a public event Friday morning at 11:30am.

Former Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday will deliver the keynote address. Greenwood and Saturday will also receive honorary doctorate degrees from Trine. Saturday is to be honored with the Doctor of Humane Letters while Greenwood is to be awarded the Doctor of Arts.

University officials say nearly 500 students will be awarded diplomas this spring with nearly 400 taking part in the commencement on Saturday. Benjamin H. Clark of Bradley, Illinois will deliver the student address as he received the Robert B. Stewart Award which is the highest award for a graduating senior at Trine.
