Now in its 17th year, Honor Walk has quickly become a cherished tradition of Centre College’s Commencement weekend, as members of the Class of 2019 gathered to honor the people who have made a significant impact on their lives.
At the beginning of the fall semester, President John A. Roush presents each member of the senior class with a “talent”—a coin with Old Centre on one side and the College seal on the other. The seniors have the entire academic year to decide to whom they will give their talent—be they family, friends, professors, coaches or classmates—the day before the Commencement ceremony.
Honor Walk takes place in Old Centre, where the seniors walk through the front door and through its foyer. After passing through the back door and down the steps, stopping in front of Centre’s beloved seal, the seniors finally pass their talents on to those they choose to honor.
