CSU’s First Year Convocation Features CSU Alumnus Stefan Lawrence

CSU will host its annual convocation for all first-year students at noon, on Friday, August 25, in University Hall. The guest speaker this year is Stefan Lawrence, CSU alumnus and 2016 Muscogee County Teacher of the Year.

The program is designed to celebrate the beginning of the educational journey of the first year college student. It’s also an opportunity for the faculty and staff to formally welcome and show support for the students as they achieve their educational goals.

“I am honored and proud to be asked to participate in this great event,” said Lawrence. “I want to inspire the new students to look for balance in their education, including the knowledge they will gain from outside the classroom and from each other.” Lawrence currently teaches Advanced Placement English at G.W. Carver High School in Columbus.
