Junior Convocation Filled with Scholarships

Junior Convocation Filled with Scholarships

A ceremony that marks the end of a difficult year of study, the Junior Convocation is a time when the school comes together as a group to recognize the hard work and dedication of the entire junior class. With the seniors no longer on campus, the Convocation also signifies the transition into senior year for juniors who have grown so much since entering Jesuit.

The Junior Convocation, which was held May 20 in the Terry Center at 2:30 PM, distinguished the Jesuit juniors who stood out in their classes, extracurriculars, community service, and more. Granting awards and scholarships for their exemplary work, the school recognized juniors from a variety of backgrounds for their accomplishments during the year.

Michael White ‘15 explained that the convocation “filled my heart with joy that I was recognized for who I am. Junior year was definitely the toughest year, and I’m glad that my hard work paid off. However, with all award ceremonies, I wish that everybody who cared about something but did not get recognized will eventually be recognized for their passions during their career at Jesuit. It’s not about the award, it’s about showing that you love something. I care about the community around me, and I think that’s why I was given the Clarkson book award.”

Andrew Suarez ’15 commented that winning an award “means a lot not only to me but for my parents as well, who have dedicated so much time and money to my growth as a student and individual. I feel like it was a way I could give something back to them.”

The junior convocation is different from all the other convocations in that it provides the most awards and scholarships. For instance, this year’s convocation awarded over $100,000 in scholarships. The junior convocation also gives dozens of college book awards, which are given by universities to students who exemplify the qualities that that community values.

Collin Stack ‘15, who won the McWhorter Scholarship ($9,000), said that “the magnitude of the scholarship hit me all at once. I knew how much it meant to my parents to have such a huge amount of my tuition account for, and I knew how much it meant to the McWhorter family. The look on Mrs. McWhorter’s face as I walked towards her was awesome to see. You could really see how special the scholarship is to her.”

“Then there’s the whole deal with receiving it in front of all the faculty and my classmates. It’s incredibly humbling to receive such as huge award in front of the people who guide and accompany you through your Jesuit experience. When they called my name, I was in complete shock! I was completely surprised, but also full of a huge wave of happiness at the same time.”

Even if one does not receive the largest award, it is still a great honor to receive recognition for the many hours one has invested. James Schroeder ‘15 noted that “it was an honor to win an award in front of my peers, teachers, and parents and to be recognized for all of the hard work I put in.”

While there were many awards given, the Henrion Scholarship may have been the most prestigious, as it is given in memory of Tim Henrion, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident just days before he began his senior year at Jesuit in 1986. Nico Rodriguez ‘15 won this impressive award, which recognizes “a work grant student who has excelled in academics, in activities, and who has conscientiously and enthusiastically carried out his work grant responsibilities.”

Unfortunately, not every student can win an award or scholarship. However, those who are chosen to receive one should feel honored and blessed. The Junior Convocation attempts to acknowledge those who deserve recognition because of their excellence both inside and outside of the classroom. As the members of the Class of 2015 begins their transition into senior year, they will hopefully be able to continue to use their gifts in school, sports, service, etc. to enrich the Jesuit community.
