Noah Martin ’18 (Louisville, Kentucky) and Amaryst Parks ‘18 (Florence, Alabama) will be the keynote speakers at Centre College’s honors convocation on Tuesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. in Newlin Hall in the Norton Center for the Arts.
Remarks from the speakers, who are selected by tallying votes from the senior class, are always a highlight of the annual celebration of student achievements. The program will also include the announcement of major campus prize recipients, as well as the recipients of program prizes and inductees to academic honorary societies.

He is also a Brown Fellow, residence director, Centre ambassador and is active in the Centre Christian Fellowship. Following graduation, he will likely serve as a high school history teacher with Teach For America Corps of Mississippi.

Young Scholar, Brown Fellow, resident assistant and CentrePeace executive council member.
