April 15-19, 2013, marks the 21st Annual J. Harry & Anna Jeanes Academic Honors Week & Convocation. Endowed by J. Harry and Anna Jeanes and overseen by the Honors College, these events are focal points of our academic year and are an ongoing recognition and celebration of the rigorous and exciting undergraduate experience provided for our students. The Honors Convocation is held to jointly recognize undergraduate academic excellence across the University, including recognizing Outstanding Students from the College of Arts and Sciences, the Honors College, and the Schools of Business, Education, Engineering/Computer Science, Music, Nursing, and Social Work.
The Convocation will begin with a piano prelude performed by Mr. Alex Kostadinov, Sophomore Piano Performance major (Baylor School of Music) from Moscow, Russia, to be followed by Provost Elizabeth Davis' Welcome and Invocation. Dean Thomas Hibbs of the Honors College will give Words of Appreciation. Ms. Elizabeth Vardaman, Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, will introduce the keynote speaker, Mr. James A. Nortey II, 2008 Philosophy and Criminal Justice graduate of the Baylor Honors College and Attorney at Law, Andrews Kurth LLP in Austin, Texas, who will deliver a presentation on "Call and Respons[ability]." Provost Davis will then recognize the Outstanding Students campus-wide, along with their respective Department Chairs/Program Directors and Deans. Phi Beta Kappa inductees will also be recognized as a group for their accomplishments. The Convocation will conclude with the presentation of the Cornelia Marschall Smith Outstanding Professor of the Year Award. Immediately following the Convocation, all Outstanding Students will be invited to have their photographs taken with their Department Chairs/Program Directors and Deans, and to attend a reception in the adjoining second-floor foyer of the Bill Daniel Student Center.
