Honorary Class Members
Each year, the graduating class nominates members of the College community and community at large for honorary class membership. Honorary class members are people at the college and in the community who are important to the class. Honorary class members receive class letters for that year's class, may be invited to Reunions, etc. They are recognized at Baccalaureate, and are unaware of their honor until that time. Honorary class members are not asked to speak at Baccalaureate.
