The new Students’ Union consists of a team of exuberant individuals who perfectly represent the vibrant community of Stella Maris. And, the unveiling of their logo was the icing on the cake.The logo was unveiled to the students and staff of Stella Maris College on 3 July 2018 at the OAT. Students were requested to come dressed in shades of yellow, red, or orange to cheer on the Union’s new logo.
The event began with a prayer song to invoke the blessings of the Almighty. This was followed by a welcome address from Swathi, Cultural Secretary Shift 1.
Then came the most awaited moment; the unveiling of the logo. The Principal, Dr. Sr. Rosy Joseph, was called upon to do the honours.
True to the spirit of the Union, the logo was a woman’s hand in a snapping motion with a flame emitting from her index finger. Under the logo were the words IGNITE, Discover the fire within. The members of the Union explained the logo. It was accompanied by a video depicting the accomplishments of women all around the world, many of them being our very own Stella Marians. The Union also announced a new and an exciting Youth Skills Programme, which includes workshops that will be organised by various clubs and other student training sessions.
Dr. Sr. Rosy Joseph also addressed the gathering and highly commended the Union on their logo and requested all students to support the Union’s endeavours. This was followed by the Investiture Ceremony of the Union members and executive representatives.The ceremony then ended with vote of thanks delivered by Rita, General Secretary, followed by the College Song.
