Laurenzo inducted

into Sewanee group

Juliet Katherine Laurenzo of Oxford was inducted into the Order of Gownsmen at the University of the South during Founders’ Day Convocation on Oct. 16.

Laurenzo is the daughter of Dorothy & John Frederick Laurenzo.

The Order of Gownsmen is an academic honor society and a unique student government body among U.S. colleges and universities. Since 1875 the Order of Gownsmen has remained the body responsible for maintaining the spirit, traditions, and ideals of the University of the South. The wearing of the gown is both a sign of academic achievement and a promise to continue the ideals and traditions of the University.
