Honors Programs participants, recipients of certain scholarships or awards, and torchbearer graduates will be identified in the program as well. A graduate is considered to be a torchbearer if a member of the student's immediate family is a Southwestern alum, faculty, or staff member. Commencement programs will be available at the entrance of the venue and digitally online.
