Commencement Is a Celebration, Not a Class
This is the first time in 18 years that I am not responsible for securing a commencement speaker. Being in my self-described presidential intermission, I have had a chance to think about lots of things, and at this time of the year as I read the announcements of commencement speaker selections, I wonder whom I would have been able to secure this year. I had some good leads, too!
