Honors Convocation 2011

Posted: April 19, 2011

The campus community is invited to attend the 54th annual Honors Convocation on Thursday, April 21, at 12:15 p.m. in Rockwell Hall Auditorium. The ceremony will recognize 1,124 students for outstanding academic achievement.

All invited students have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or higher and have accumulated a minimum of 45 credit hours at Buffalo State (30 for transfer students).

Ashley Bartee, president of Kappa Delta Pi, will convene the ceremony, and Hibajene Shandomo, associate professor of Elementary Education and Reading, will deliver the keynote address. Paul Theobald, interim dean of the School of Education, will present the honors candidates to Provost Dennis Ponton, who also will offer remarks. As a token of the college’s recognition, each student is presented with a Buffalo State Honors Convocation pin.

The Buffalo State College Chamber Choir will perform all musical selections, including the national anthem and the alma mater, “Our Finest Hour.”

Kappa Delta Pi and the Academic Affairs Office are cosponsoring the event. A light reception will immediately follow the ceremony.
