Welcome To The Club: A Look Back at the Spring Letter Jacket Ceremony

Apr 4, 2013, 9:03 PM EST

The Notre Dame Monogram Club held its annual spring letter jacket ceremony on Wednesday night in Club Naimoli honoring more than 50 first-time monogram winners. Student athletic trainers, video technicians, and student-athletes from the cheerleading, football, soccer, volleyball and cross country programs were recognized for their accomplishments, joining an elite group in Notre Dame’s illustrious history.

Lake Dawson (’94 football), a six-year NFL veteran receiver and the current Vice President of Player Personnel for the Tennessee Titans delivered the keynote address, and Monogram Club executive director Beth Hunter and volleyball head coach Debbie Brown presented an honorary monogram to University Vice President and Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick (’76).

There’s a full recap of the event on the Monogram Club website…but for a lighter take on the festivities and a view through the eyes of the student-athletes, here’s a look at a few of the tweets and Instagram pics from the evening.
