Things You Need to Know About Senior Girl Call-Out
History and Purpose
Senior Girl Call-Out was initiated in 1947 by Miss Sallie Duncan, who was Dean of Women. The script for the ceremony was written by Librarian Dr. Mary K. Armstrong. This ceremony was established to honor young women of the senior class for their achievements during their time here at ETBU. From all the senior girls who choose to participate in the Call-Out, the ETBU Faculty and Staff select one to honor as the Call-Out recipient. The choice is made on the basis of Christian character, social consciousness, personal poise, academic achievement, and spiritual vision.
If you are a female ETBU Student graduating in May of 2020 or December of 2020, you are eligible to participate in Senior Girl Call-Out.
2020 Selection Process
All participants will be selected by ETBU faculty and staff through an online voting platform. Submissions will be due by Thursday, April 2 at 5:00 p.m. After faculty and staff vote, the Student Engagement Staff will announce our Senior Girl Call-Out 2020 on Friday, April 17 via live stream video.
