Reverend Glenn Noe will deliver the baccalaureate address to the Alice Lloyd College graduating class of 2014.
A native of Kentucky, Reverend Noe graduated from Dilce Combs High School in Jeff, Kentucky, and then continued his education at Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Kentucky. His calling to serve God and his fellow man led him to pursue a master’s degree from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.
Reverend Noe is married to Sheila Everage Noe, a retired administrator at the Hazard Nursing Home. Together, the Noes have served the mountain people for over 30 years. During the course of his career, Reverend Noe has served several pastorates within eastern Kentucky and has helped establish three new churches at Maytown, Colson, and Myra. He and his wife currently reside in Red Fox, Kentucky, and have two daughters, two sons-in-law, and six grandchildren.
Dr. Anthony Yonts will deliver the commencement address to the Alice Lloyd College 2014 graduating class.
Dr. Yonts was born in the small town of Bevinsville, in Floyd County, Kentucky, to Thomas and Yvonne Yonts, who still reside there. He is an alumnus of The June Buchanan School, Alice Lloyd College, and the Pikeville College School of Osteopathic Medicine (now KYCOM). He received his DO degree from Pikeville in 2003. He then attended a dual residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center, in Lexington, and finished in 2007. Dr. Yonts is currently dual board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. After residency, he returned to the region and co-founded Quantum Health Care, in Hazard, Kentucky, and has been there since. Dr. Yonts says he loves what he does and feels blessed to get to practice and care for the people of this area.
Dr. Yonts and his wife, Kristy (a Letcher County native), are the proud parents of two wonderful children, Braden, who is 7 years old, and Ava, who is 5 years old. Both children attend The June Buchanan School. Dr. Yonts and his family reside in Hazard, Kentucky.
