Academic Honors Convocation
April 10, 2017
"I love this day!" exclaimed Brian Telzerow, Professor of Youth Ministry at Kuyper College. He was talking about the Academic Honors Convocation held at Kuyper in the Vos Chapel on Friday, April 7. The event celebrated the achievements of graduating seniors and other students who excelled academically.
The event began with the singing of Now We Thank All Our God, and interim President, Dr. Carl E. Zylstra welcoming the audience of students and their families, faculty and staff and opening in prayer. This was followed by professors representing each program giving out awards to students who excelled academically.
Graduating seniors who achieved the appropriate GPA scores were awarded with gold, silver, or red cords. These cords will be worn during the graduation ceremonies later in April.
After students appearing on the dean's list for the winter and fall semesters of 2016 were announced, Kuyper College Provost, Dr. Patricia Harris offered a closing prayer.
