Meredith Lacrosse Graduation Ceremony, May 2017

May 11, 2017

Meredith’s Avenging Angels Lacrosse team is playing in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournament on May 13. Since the seniors on the team would miss their commencement ceremony, Meredith honored these students with their own min-commencement on May 11, 2017, in Johnson Hall rotunda. President Jo Allen, ’80, Vice President for College Programs Jean Jackson, ’75, and Chaplain Donna Battle spoke at the event, which incorporated Meredith’s long-standing traditions from commencement weekend including Class Day and the Baccalaureate Worship Service in an effort to give seniors Alyssa Codispoti, Jennifer Halvorson, Molly Miller, and Katherine Sills a truly special Meredith graduation experience. Meredith is a private college in Raleigh, N.C., known for educating and inspiring both undergraduate and graduate students to live with integrity and provide leadership for the needs, opportunities, and challenges of society.
