Commencement this past weekend for the Class of 2010 could not have been better. The weather cooperated, but more than that, the Commencement address by Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn was poignant and inspirational, as was the address by graduating senior Peter Baumann.
In addition, the honorary degree candidates were among the most impressive I have seen in my 26 years at Middlebury, and represent collectively an extraordinary example of hard work, dedication, and human achievement. I, along with so many here on campus, wish members of the Class of 2010 the best in their next endeavors.
I had the honor and pleasure of addressing the graduating seniors on Saturday at the Baccalaureate service, which you can read here.
