Honors

October 22, 2007

Kimberly Caitlin Coyle of Myersville, Md., was inducted into the Order of Gownsmen at the University of the South's Founders' Day Convocation on Oct. 9.

Coyle is the daughter of Mr. Edward M. Coyle.

Gownsmen have the privilege of ensuring that the ethos of the university, the dedication to honor and to academic diligence, is maintained, not only in themselves but also in their fellow students. The wearing of the gown is a sign of achievement, a responsibility to the traditions of the past and a promise of continuance to these ideals.

Acceptance of the gown is a pledge to aid in the governing of the student body through continued academic leadership, community awareness and moral accountability.

Though election into the Order of Gownsmen has changed through the years, from election by current members to selection by the facility, to the current grade requirements, the Order of Gownsmen has remained the body responsible for maintaining the spirit, traditions and ideals of the University of the South.
