   St. Andrews University, a branch of Webber International University, held its annual Awards Convocation, April 4.  Faculty members were piped in by Bill Caudill ’89 to a packed Avinger Auditorium with students and parents.  After the Convocation was called to order by University Marshal Dr. David Herr ’91 and a welcome from St. Andrews President Paul Baldasare Jr. ’77, the St. Andrews Singers performed a musical interlude.  Awards were then presented from faculty and department chairs to about 100 students.  At the conclusion of the event, Academic Dean Dr. Edna Ann Loftus thanked students and parents for all that had been accomplished this academic year.  Below is the list of the awards (without names), and a photo gallery that can be accessed for student pictures who received an award (without names and in no particular order).
