After the speeches were given, the College presented students from all four class years with awards in a wide array of areas, including recognition for highest grade point average and best paper in an area of study to outstanding commitment to the community and exhibition of leadership qualities. Many of the awards are annually endowed by faculty, alumni and friends of Centre College.

The ceremony also included induction of new members into various honor societies. Among them, Phi Beta Kappa, a national honor society that celebrates excellence in the liberal arts and sciences and awards students at America’s leading colleges and universities for outstanding academic performance.
