The Student Knights of St. Patrick have been selected to represent Missouri University of Science and Technology’s student organizations during the 113th St. Pat’s celebration in Rolla, Missouri.

The students will be knighted during a coronation ceremony at 7 p.m. Friday, online at rol.la/2021Coronation. Honorary Knights and the Queen of Love and Beauty will also be honored during the coronation. 

The practice of knighting students every spring can be traced back to the beginning of the 20th century, when Missouri S&T engineering students declared St. Patrick the patron saint of engineers.
