Many history department events have occurred over the last few weeks of the semester that we will report on in the next week. Our big event this week was the Senior Dinner held to celebrate the college careers and achievements of our graduating seniors. Nineteen of our graduates came together on Monday for dinner with the faculty in the Presidential Dining Room. Besides excellent food, our dinner program included short (and sometimes humorous) biographical salutes to the seniors, testimonies from the students about studying history at Messiah, a commission speech (go forth!) by Dr. Fea, and a final prayer of thanksgiving and blessing. We also recognized our two most outstanding graduating seniors, Christine Kelly and Janelle Schmouder, with the prestigious Clio Award.
Congratulations class of 2011! We will see you at graduation! We include a few images of the event below.
