The Crown and Shield awards is a tradition at Assumption, celebrated since 1952. The award was established as a result of students appealing to the administration to develop a special recognition for outstanding seniors. The crown and shield exist as key icons in the College seal.
Those recognized with this award have demonstrated outstanding leadership and participated in selfless service to the College throughout his or her four years of study. Students are recognized members of the Assumption College Community who have protected (shield) and furthered (crown) in the interests of the student body and the College in the various areas of leadership and community service to students and others.
“Crown and Shield recipients, your families are very proud of you today and they have that right to be proud,” said Dr. Catherine WoodBrooks, vice president of student affairs. “You have been selected as the outstanding student leaders in the Class of 2019, a designation afforded to only three percent of the graduating class. It should be noted that many of you also lead through service to others and have experienced the joy of giving that will undoubtedly continue throughout your lives.”
