2021 Knights of Honor named

This year's Knights of Honor are seniors Kelze’ Riley and Juston Betz. This year’s honors were announced at the homecoming dance in front of a group of their peers by Dr. Helen-Grace Ryan, Bellarmine's Vice President for Student Affairs.

Knight of Honor is an annual award given to two seniors who represent the universities values of academic excellence, intrinsic dignity, social responsibility, integrity, hospitality and stewardship. The Knights of Honor were voted on by Bellarmine students earlier this month.

Riley is a political science major on the pre-law track. Betz is a finance and accounting major who is in the early entry MBA program. Riley is an intern with Bellarmine's Center for Community Engagement and Betz is a member of the university's men’s basketball team.

The other seniors featured on the Knight of Honor Court were Grace Michels, Lizzie Hamilton, Evelyn Cutting, Trey Grevious, Katie Lagerstrom, Jordan Stacy, Maddie Horton and Eli Lonneman.
