The 2017 Baldwin High School Baccalaureate was held on May 10 at 7:30 P.M. This years baccalaureate was the twenty-fifth such event held for the local high school. Still some may be wondering what a baccalaureate is? According to online dictionaries it is,
Reverend Tom Greenwald, of the Lenexa Community Covenant
Church spoke to the Baldwin High baccalaureate
Photographer Kevin Surbaugh
a religious service held at an educational institution, usually on the Sunday before commencement day. - Dictionary.com
The citing also lists its origins to medieval Latin,
1615-25; < Medieval Latin baccalaureātus, equivalent to baccalaure(us) advanced student, bachelor (for baccalārius (see bachelor), alteration by association with Latin phrase bacca laureus laurel berry) + -ātus -ate - Dictionary.com
Due to scheduling conflicts this years baccalaureate was moved from the Performing Arts Center to the Baldwin City Assembly of God. This years senior class will graduate eighty students. Those seniors attending this years baccalaureate was addressed by Reverend Tom Greenwald, of the Lenexa Community Covenant Church, who told the Seniors that they must continue renewing their choices everyday.
