The 2019-20 Convocation for Remembrance Scholars, honoring 35 outstanding students from this year’s senior class, will be held Friday, Oct. 25, at 3 p.m. in Hendricks Chapel.
The convocation will be preceded by the annual Rose-Laying Ceremony at 2:03 p.m. at the Place of Remembrance, located in front of the Hall of Languages. This ceremony honors the 270 people, including 35 students studying abroad through Syracuse University, who were killed in the Dec. 21, 1988, bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The ceremony also honors 2002-03 Lockerbie Scholar Andrew McClune, who died in 2002.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided at the Rose-Laying Ceremony, and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be provided at the convocation. More details about Friday’s ceremonies and this year’s Remembrance and Lockerbie Scholars are available in this recent story from Syracuse University News.
