The Honors Program at Brigham Young University will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with the Historic Honors Symposium, Tuesday, March 8, beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center Assembly Hall.

Tickets are available now and can be purchased in 350 Karl G. Maeser Building through March 1. Prices are $12 per person or $20 per couple.

All guests in attendance will be listed on the commemorative program and in the official updated history of the Honors Program to be published online this spring.  A professional group photo will also be taken to memorialize the occasion.
