St. Joe seniors received their stoles at Senior Investiture in the theatre on Wednesday, September 26.

Senior Investiture signifies the leadership role that naturally arises for seniors during their last year at St. Joe.

Tessa Lingo, along with many other seniors, is excited to take charge and exemplify a good leader for the St. Joe community.

“Since we are now the oldest ones at St. Joe we have to be good examples for the lower classman to follow,” Lingo said.

During Senior Investiture, the seniors walked across the theatre stage and gladly accepted their stole from the principal, Mrs. Sudekum, in front of the whole school.

“I was a little nervous walking across the stage in front of everyone but I didn’t let it show because I am now looked up to as a senior.” senior Molly Vincent said.

Former principal, Dr. Diane Cooper, brought the concept of Senior Investiture to St.Joe about seven years ago.

“I am grateful for the start of this tradition because it makes seniors feel special. It raises awareness for how cool senior year is and the seniors impact on the school.” Mrs. Sudekum said.
