CONVOCATION USHERS IN NEW SCHOOL YEAR


8/26/2005


Pittsburgh, PA -- Students in the class of 2009 became official members of the La Roche College community at Convocation, held on Friday, August 26 at the Kerr Fitness and Sports Center. New students joined parents, faculty, administrators and staff who attended the annual ceremony that marks the beginning of the new academic year. They received a welcome from Frances Sabo, associate professor of education in the School of Arts and Sciences and the 2005 recipient of the Brother Gregory Nugent Award for Faculty Excellence.

“La Roche is now your home away from home. As a member of the La Roche College family, you now have a network of support that will be a source of strength, courage and inspiration,” said Sabo to La Roche’s new students. “Just like a family, we have high expectations of you, but we will guide you in reaching your goals and help you find the answer to the question ‘What do you want to be?’”

Students and parents also received words of welcome from Sister Candace Introcaso, La Roche president, who challenged La Roche’s newest class to take an active role in the campus community. She called on them to participate, to share their experiences and insights so they could find their voices during their college years.
