SENIOR SPEAKER AUDITIONS

Replies Due Today!

It has been a long-standing tradition at the College for a member of the graduating class to speak at both the Baccalaureate and Commencement Ceremonies. Addressing your classmates for one last time is truly an honor and a highly sought after opportunity. Traditionally, the Baccalaureate speaker remarks about the interweaving of faith and education while the Commencement speaker addresses and reflects on their time at W&J. Both are encouraged to include shared stories of the W&J community during these celebratory events. 

 

If you would like to be one of the student speakers at the Baccalaureate or Commencement ceremonies, please contact Devan Carrrington, at

dcarrington@washjeff.eduAll replies must be received by today.
