Helpful Hints

  1. Your department /honor society should have selected your award recipient by March 2nd. If your award requires a datatel query in order to determine the winner please submit that query by January 9th. You must follow the criteria of the individual award and the Rules and Procedures for Honors Convocation Awards.
  2. Once you have selected your award recipient meet with him/her and fill out the Individual Award Form with the student. The award form requires information from you and the student so please do this together. EVERY piece of information on the form is used either in the planning of Honors Convocation, the mailing of invitations, or the preparation of publicity releases, etc. When a piece of information is left off it causes extra work on behalf of the committee members. It is most important that the address, email, and phone number of the student be provided by the student. DO NOT use information from the Datatel database. The student’s name must be spelled correctly as it is to appear in the program. Parent/spouse information must be provided.
  3. Inform your recipient that they must go to University photography to have their picture taken for the Wall of Honor in the Trojan Center. Pictures will be taken from 8:30 am to 11:30 am, and from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. No appointment is necessary. An academic robe will be provided for them to wear for the picture. If your student can’t have their picture taken during these time periods, call Kevin Glackmeyer at ext. 3236 to schedule an appointment. If your student absolutely can’t have their picture taken, please notify Barbara Patterson at bpatters@troy.edu.
  4. You must wear academic regalia to Honors Convocation and the rehearsal.
  5. For planning purposes Natalie Bryant must know whether or not you and your award recipient will be at Honors Convocation rehearsal and Honors Convocation. Please e-mail her by March 30th confirming your attendance and your student's attendance at both events. Her e-mail is bryantn@troy.edu.
  6. Honors Convocation rehearsal serves two purposes. The first is to help us and the award recipients see the flow of the program and to have publicity pictures taken with the Chancellor for hometown news releases. Please make sure you have notified your award recipient to be present at this time. Remember that in your award presentation, you must give a description of the award and name the winner, not a description of the winner. You should be prepared to have your picture taken with the recipient for a hometown press release. Be sure to have your recipient dress appropriately for rehearsal (they will be given an academic robe for the picture) and you should have your academic regalia and you should also have with you the award that will be given.
  7. Honors Convocation will be held at 7:00 p.m. in Crosby Theatre. Remember you must wear academic regalia (no cap). Please be there at 6:30 pm for line up in the lobby.
