Xavier Cintas Center- Cincinnati, OH- Sunday, May 26th: a day students and parents alike anticipated for thirteen years. 12:30pm: a canopy of 365 black caps and orange tassels filed into rows along the floor of the Xavier University Cintas Center. As the Loveland class of 2019 slipped into their alphabetical-order seats, students shared glances of equal glee and nervous anticipation.

Students and parents were greeted by a full string/brass orchestra of Loveland non-seniors, a multi-class performance unusual in years past. Band teacher Geoff Miller conducted a many-minute rendition of Pomp and Circumstance.

Soon after the Loveland class of 2019 was seated, class representative Jordan Morrison offered a welcome. Class representative Meghan Lolli introduced guests and lead The National Anthem, followed by class president Jackson Tyler Popp’s presidential address.

Between speeches, Loveland’s 2019 choral Senior Ensemble sang Irish Blessing, a long-running tradition. Hannah Ackley followed the performance with her salutatory address.
