Matthew Cozad and Emily Gogel escort "St. Patrick" as they exit the 102nd annual knighting ceremony as fellow knights do the traditional grand kow-tow on the shamrock between Lafferre and Switzler Halls at MU on Friday. The knighting ceremony is one of the oldest traditions at MU and of E-week. The grand kow-tow started as a tradition with St. Patrick's first visit to campus in 1905. It is done in reverence and respect for the great patron saint.
