Decatur, GA — Agnes Scott College kicked off the school year on Aug. 23 with the school’s honor pledge ceremony and senior investiture.
President Leocadia Zak and Rachel Bowser, the college’s new vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college, began the honor pledge ceremony with an introduction to the school year, according to an announcement from the college.
Students gathered in Gaines Chapel and were addressed by Student Government Association (SGA) President Rosa Parks ’23 and Honor Court Chief Justice Ashley Kopczyk ’23.
