Awards Chapel and Alumni Induction Luncheon

Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

Awards Chapel

On May 3 the Graduation Week festivities began with Awards Chapel.  Awards were presented by the different academic departments to deserving graduates.

There were also non-academic awards for things like Christian character and Christian ministry.

This year we created a new award called “Who’s Who at Calvary University,” and eleven undergraduates and seven graduate level students were the first to receive it.

Graduates who excelled with high grade point averages were presented with their cords to wear with their regalia.


Alumni Induction Luncheon

Following Awards Chapel, we invited the graduates to attend the Alumni Induction Luncheon.  We enjoyed a delicious taco bar from Silber Spoons Catering!

Then I presented Alumni Association certificates to each graduate in attendance.  I also took some time to recognize the spouses of the graduates for what they have done to “put honey through.”  As I welcomed the graduates to the alumni family, I informed them of the benefits and responsibilities that come with that distinction.  Dr. Hessel shared a brief word from the Development Department, and Jeanette Regier showed the new alumni what kind of family they are joining by sharing specific examples of Calvary alumni.
