Award/Scroll Wording:
Hrodir, by right of arms King, and Anne, by right of inspiration Queen of Northshield, to all whom these presents do come, greetings!

Reason ordains and equity requires that when a subject attains excellence in her endeavors, it behooves the crown to recognize these accomplishments and make them plain to all and sundry.

Thus do We, by these letters patent, of our certain knowledge, by common renown and by report and witness of other noble men and ladies worthy of credence, recognize and certify that our right trusty and well-beloved subject Gweniver Kenwyn of Roseveth has truly deserved and is worthy that henceforward perpetually and in all places she be honorably admitted, renowned, accounted, numbered and received as a Mistress and Companion of our Order of the Laurel, for her life-long devotion to the arts and her willingness to share her knowledge. 

By these letters patent, we do also reaffirm her right to bear the arms, "Per pale vert and sable, a pegasus rampant Or between three roses argent, a bordure embattled Or", as registered with the College of Arms. Also may she bear upon her person the symbol of her status, the laurel wreath, that all may know and be certain of the esteem in which she is held.

This do we by our hands this 8 February AS 48 in our Shire of Rockhaven upon the occasion of a session of the Stellar University of Northshield.

Hrodir, Rex

Anne, Regina
