CHADRON – Chadron State College recognized seniors at the institution's traditional Ivy Day ceremony Friday in Memorial Hall. The annual event, which has occurred at CSC every year since 1919, is sponsored by the Blue Key and Cardinal Key honor societies.

Ivy Day royalty elected by the student body were queen Sara Marlatt and king Garret Dockweiler. The queen's attendants were Larissa Hastings, Leyna Brummels, Teryn Blessin and Mariah Conyers.

The king's attendants were Coy Clark, Colton Wright, Justin German and Regg Strotheide.

The Platinum Eagle awards were presented to Frantzlee LaCrete of Lewellen, Nebraska, and Teryn Blessin of Greenwood, Neb. The award, considered the highest honor a CSC student can receive, is presented annually to one male and one female for distinguished leadership and service.

The winners of the royalty competition and Platinum Eagle were just some of the outstanding winter 2016 and spring 2017 graduates who received accolades during Ivy Day. Many students were also recognized for their outstanding accomplishments in their primary fields of study or other honors.

In addition, special recognition was given to students who graduated with one of three honor designations: summa cum laude, magna cum laude and cum laude.
