St. Lawrence College puts out the call for Honorary Diploma nominations

2013-01-10

Do you know an extraordinary community leader, someone who would be an inspiration to our students and alumni through their achievements?  Then consider nominating them for an Honorary Diploma from St. Lawrence College.

The St. Lawrence College Board of Governors confers Honorary Diplomas each year at our Convocation ceremonies. We accept and welcome nominations on an ongoing basis, and nominations received by January 21, 2013 will be considered for our Spring 2013 convocation ceremonies.

"Every year we take great pride in conferring honorary diplomas as an important way to connect with our communities and local leaders,” said Gordon C. MacDougall, Senior Vice President - Advancement, Student & External Affairs at St. Lawrence College. “It’s a definite highlight to our Convocation ceremonies, as we know our graduating students find their addresses inspiring as they take the next important steps in their lives as St. Lawrence College graduates.”
