Students who achieved the Dean’s List were honored at this week’s convocation in the International Cultural Center.

The Board of Trustees, deans and department chairs attended in full academic regalia.

“These are the future world-changers,” said Dr. F. Carl Walton, vice president of student affairs.

Dean’s List students are those who earn a GPA of 3.3 or higher. They were seated on the lower level of the ICC in front of the stage, along with their families and friends. Other Lincoln students sat above on the upper level of the auditorium.

Walton opened the convocation by welcoming families of students and the members of the Board of Trustees, then introduced Pastor Frederick Faison.

Pastor Faison offered a moving and motivational prayer. He also recognized the students, noting their accomplishments at Lincoln and looking ahead to their achievements after they leave Lincoln.

The Choir then performed a song so soft, elegant, and with precision that had the audience in awe and amazement with their talent.
