For many freshmen, Senior Convocation is just another dreary event with Mr. McDaniel or Mr. Garrison listing off the names of people they’ve probably never met, but, as students progress in their Jesuit career, they begin to grasp the significance of this event. On the morning of Friday, May 8th, the Class of 2015 finally experienced this significance firsthand. After all...
An event that takes places toward the end of the academic school year, convocation is designed to recognize students who have excelled in particular subjects, displayed a great passion for learning in a particular subject, demonstrated consistent service and leadership, or simply exemplified what it means to be a Jesuit student.  The ceremony certainly recognizes students where recognition is...
