King's Crown Awards to Be Presented

The King's Crown Awards, a Columbia annual tradition in recognizing student leadership, will be presented to approximately 150 outstanding students on Tuesday night, Apr. 23.

The ceremony will be held in Ferris Booth Hall's Wollman Auditorium from 5:30 to 7:30 P.M. All undergraduates are invited to attend.

The King's Crown has been awarded at Columbia for more than 75 years.

The ceremony will also include a farewell tribute to Ferris Booth Hall, with readings and reminiscences of the student center soon to be razed.

"It is the last big affair in Ferris Booth," said Colleen Wheeler, Office of Student Activities administrator, who is organizing the event.

Jeff Li, CC'96, president of the Union of Student Organizations, said, "It's an attempt to bring some closure to the existence of FBH. It could be a somber moment, or a happy moment."
