All Smiles at UW Honors' 2016 Celebration of Distinction

Jun 23, 2016

On the morning of June 10 we celebrated over 100 talented, committed undergraduate students from disciplines across campus as they transitioned into new alumni of UW Honors. 

At Honors' annual Celebration of Distinction (affectionately known as "The CoD") students, families and friends come together with faculty, staff, and alumni of the University at a special brunch with live music, awards, inspiring speeches, and a cording procession administered by Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, Ed Taylor. Special guest speakers included Distinguished Alumna Justice Bobbe Bridge ('68), scholarship recipient Tressa Thomas ('17), and keynote speaker Stella Jones ('16).

Finally, see how much fun we had in our Facebook photo album! Special thanks to Ryan Luk (UW Honors) and Josh Burke (Grad Images) for capturing the magic. 


To our graduates: We are grateful to have taken part in the education of so many wonderful people and will miss you dearly! Don't lose touch with your friends from Honors. Keep coming to our events, join up as an alumni mentor, or find other ways to stay involved with our community of learners for life.

With great affection, the Staff of UW Honors
