2014 Commencement Uganda flag bearer

Representing Uganda

Students who are selected for this honor will receive notification from the MCISA in late April. Students must be available to participate in a rehearsal on the Friday prior to Commencement.

In the case where more than one student from the same country is interested in carrying the flag, students will be asked to submit a resume or CV highlighting their grade point average and all campus involvements to the MCISA director for review by our selection committee. Flag bearers will be selected based on significant positive contributions to campus during your studies. Deadline to submit your CV or resume is April 22.

The MCISA does not select flag bearers for the US flag, the Missouri State flag, or the Webster University flag. Those flag bearers are selected by the Dean of Students in recognition of outstanding leadership on campus.
