Gies to speak at Fall Convocation

Members of the University community will be rewarded for their outstanding achievements at Fall Convocation on Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. in University Hall. David T. Gies, Commonwealth Professor of Spanish, will deliver the convocation address. The event opens U.Va.’s Family Weekend Oct. 22-24 and recognizes undergraduate students for their academic excellence. Intermediate honors will be presented to the top 20 percent of students who have finished at least 60 course hours during their first two years at U.Va. Gies, a former chairman of Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, was the 2000 recipient of U.Va.’s highest honor, the Thomas Jefferson Award, which has been given annually since 1955 and will be presented at convocation. It recognizes a member of the University community who exemplifies the ideals of the University’s founder through character, work and devotion.
