Commencement Address 2016: J. Kent Sweezey '70
Outgoing President of the Board of Trustees and alumnus J. Kent Sweezey delivered the commencement address to the Class of 2016. Kent encourages the newest alumni to listen to all people, you will expand your horizons. He asks them to Be Committed, Be Amazed and Be Grateful. "The surprising thing about taking the time to be interested in people who might otherwise go unnoticed is that no matter how different the worlds from which you come are, the effort to find common ground and shared experiences values them—and you—as human beings."
