Academic Convocation 2016

September 1, 2016


At Academic Convocation on Wednesday, August 31, the Stonehill community opened the new school year by celebrating faculty excellence, hearing sage advice on how to make the most of the college experience, and dipping into local history with the presentation of an Ames shovel to President John Denning, C.S.C. Music came courtesy of the College’s Concert Ensemble and the Collegiate Chorale who framed the fast-moving 50 minute ceremony in a packed field house at the Sports Complex. English Professor Helga Duncan was honored with this year’s Louise F. Hegarty Award for Excellence in teaching.
