By Jessica Lynch '13
Assumption College honored 35 students with awards for academic excellence on April 22 during the 29th Annual Honors Convocation. The ceremony was held on campus, in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit.

Honorary alumni, Mr. James Rutledge ’74, President, Vice Chairman, and Chief Financial Officer of Clean Harbors Incorporated, addressed the gathering by sharing his thought on the value of a liberal arts education.

“Each year, Assumption College faculty take on the difficult task of choosing the most meritorious student in each of its major programs of study,” said Assumption College Academic Dean Eloise Knowlton. “To receive a Departmental Award is to be named the best among peers in the field. Among so many excellent and excelling students, it is never an easy choice for a department to make; to be named a Departmental Award honoree is a significant achievement.”
