Ian Marnoch receives Chris Vais Community Award at Knox’s Graduand Celebration, March 18

smDecember graduands - Ian cropIan Marnoch, completing Knox College’s Master of Divinity program in December 2015, received the Chris Vais Community Award at Knox’s Graduand Celebration on Friday, March 18.

The Chris Vais Community Award is presented to a theological student in his/her graduating year who has contributed to the Knox Community in an exceptional way by having a pastoral and community building influence on the College. The person who receives this award is elected by faculty, staff, and students of Knox College.

Knox’s Graduand Celebration is an opportunity for College faculty, staff, and students to acknowledge and congratulate graduating students on their hard work. This year, 13 of 32 graduands were able to attend the banquet, along with family and friends. The March 18 event began with a Service of Celebration for Knox College Graduands, including a message by Dr. Brian Irwin, anointing of graduands, and a litany of blessing. The group then enjoyed a reception hosted by Principal Dorcas Gordon before moving to the dining hall for a banquet. After toasts from faculty, staff, and students, Dr. John Vissers presented the graduands with packages of information on graduation and the Knox Ewart Graduates’ Association; the group also received gift cards from the Mission and Theology (student council) society.

Come celebrate with graduands awarded their degrees at Knox’s 172nd Convocation on Wednesday, May 11, 2016. Find more information about this year’s convocation and pre-convocation events here.
