Each year at the Knights’ Ball, Saint Patrick himself shares the history of the KSP traditions, knights the new generation of awardees, and introduces the next Knights’ Director. Since 1950, five faculty and staff from the College of Engineering who previously received the title of Honorary Knight have served as Saint Patrick.
