Student Knights of St. Patrick have been selected to represent Missouri University of Science and Technology student organizations during the 101st St. Pat’s celebration in Rolla.
The students will be knighted during coronation ceremonies at 9 p.m. Friday, March 13, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the Missouri S&T campus.
The practice of knighting students every spring can be traced back to the beginning of the 20th century, when Missouri S&T engineering students declared St. Patrick the patron saint of engineers.
