What: University of Lethbridge Mace Program to visit Immanuel Christian High School

When: Wednesday, June 21, 2017, 12:15 p.m.

Where: Immanuel Christian High School, 802 6 Ave N

The University of Lethbridge Mace Program will visit Immanuel Christian High School as Convocation Chief Marshal Dr. Olu Awosoga, dressed in full regalia, will speak to Grade 6 students as part of their course, Community Connections. The course introduces students to new and different places and events in Lethbridge with the goal of helping them find something in the area that sparks their interest. Students will then have the opportunity to don white gloves and hold the mace, which has been used in U of L Convocation ceremonies since being dedicated in 1988.

The U of L Mace Program has been visiting schools since 2013.
