The Honors Day Convocation is an annual celebration in which students are recognized for their distinguished academic achievements. It is one of Alice Lloyd College’s most important assemblies and traditions. During this special convocation, the College’s “brightest and best” students are named.
President Joe A. Stepp will deliver the opening remarks. Afterwards, audience members will enjoy a special performance by the Voices of Appalachia, the College’s choir, who will be singing “Lay ‘Em Down” accompanied by Bluegrass instruments. In addition, superior students will be given awards for excellence in specific subjects and majors. Other prizes will also be handed out, including the James V. Mongiardo Speech Award, the Billie and Curtis Owens Writing Awards (in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction), and the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award (for a male and female student). The Berger Scholars will be announced at this assembly, along with special achievements by students in various organizations and community service projects.
The convocation is on Tuesday, April 10th, and begins at 1 PM in the CAC Auditorium (Estelle Campbell Center for the Arts). It is required for all students to attend the Honors Day Convo celebration.
