This year's convocation will feature 4 Valdosta State University speakers: Ms. Maya Mapp, Ms. Colleen Kavanaugh, and Mr. Rickey Hooks representing the Student Body, and Dr. Christine James representing the VSU faculty. Ms. Mapp is the incoming Student Government Association President and is majoring in Political Science and Philosophy. Ms. Kavanaugh was last year's Student Government Vice-President and is a Speech Communication major. Mr. Hooks is an Interdisciplinary Studies student and studies Biology, International Business and Psychology. Dr. Christine James is a professor of Philosophy in the Philosophy and Religious Studies department.

All of the speakers will share their thoughts on some of their basic values and discuss why they hold those values. Their talks are inspired by this year's commom reader, This I Believe: Life Lessons, edited by Gediman, Gregory, and Gediman. Although we may come from different cities, states and even countries, the commom reader is our first connection to each other and to VSU. You will have a chance to share some of your basic values and beliefs at the Discussion Groups scheduled from 4:00-5:00 pm.

Class of 2020, we are gald you have chosen Valdosta State University, and we will officially welcome you at the convocation at the P.E. complex at 8:45 am on Thursday, August 11th!
