May 22, 2014

Maggie Hudson was named Valedictorian for the Class of 2014. In her valedictory oration, she reminded her classmates of the familiar words of Ecclesiastes 3 (“For everything there is a season”), and suggested that this is not a time to stop learning, but a time to put aside their books and to use the knowledge they have gained over the last four years. Hudson, a Chemistry major from Paris, Tennessee, proposed that the graduates think of the Sewanee angels who will go with them from the gates as carriers of knowledge, helping the graduates take with them the experiences and understanding they earned on the Mountain.
