Student Senate Inauguration and Spirit Rock Blessing

May 09, 2018

LIVONIA, Mich. – The 3rd Madonna University Student Senate Inauguration ceremony was held Friday, May 4 in the Franciscan Center Sr. Danatha Suchyta Gathering Center. Outgoing President Adam Lindoo swore in the 2018-2019 President and Vice President Elaine Hamilton and Sarah James. Hamilton and James also swore in new secretaries and senate representatives. The President and Vice President shared remarks about why they ran for office and their plans for another great year of Student Senate achievements.

Hamilton met James during a Study Abroad trip to London, and both served on the 2017-2018 Student Senate, so it was fitting that they would campaign together.

Following the Inauguration there was a ceremonial blessing of the Spirit Rock, in which Father Charles Morris splashed all of the holy water on the Rock. Donated by the Rock Shoppe in Plymouth, Mich., the Spirit Rock was the brainchild of the Student Senate. Members of both the 2017-2018 and next year’s Student Senate had their picture taken by the Spirit Rock.
