Not everyone was punctual for the Honors Convocation. Three undergraduate students stood by the door leading to the gym handing program pamphlets, even sometime after the ceremony started at 3:30 p.m.
Meghan Tedder is a Junior Work Studies student managing the table. She was assisted by her two friends Sari Greene and Drew Bennett after asking them. As Tedder was the only one working to pay off her tuition, her friends simply helped without pay.
The three Juniors set up the table to hand out the program pamphlets that tells of the awards given and which division chair gives them out. After setting up early in time for the ceremony to start (around 2:45 p.m., according to Greene), the trio of students stayed for an hour, going a little over the time when the convocation started. They eventually left the field house at 3:45 p.m., leaving behind the remainder of pamphlets to be picked up by anyone else coming in late.
Karen Brown, the Assistant Dean, was also waiting outside. Despite being the head of the ceremony, she willingly kept herself from acting on what will be the faculty’s job now.
“It’s on its own now,” said Brown. “It succeeds or fails without me.”
