SCPS faculty members are asked to nominate a student speaker. Nominations will be reviewed by the SCPS graduation committee to determine the list of student finalists. The finalists will be contacted in November to submit an application, which will include a letter of intent, a draft of their speech, and a resume. The selection process will conclude in December 2017.

Speeches should be 3–5 minutes long (700–850 words) and should reflect on how your education at Loyola has been a transformative experience.
