Marlboro College graduated its largest class on Sunday, May 16, 2010, with 80 students receiving bachelor's degrees and one obtaining a master's. A steady breeze tempered the bright sunshine, and all participants were energized by the gypsy jazz music performed by Mike Harrist '10 (double-bass), Zach Pearson '11 (guitar) and Larry Bloch (violin) during the processional, interlude and recessional.
The 2010 commencement also marked a passing of the torch from outgoing board of trustee chairman, Bart Goodwin, to Dean Nicyper '76, the first Marlboro College alumni to hold the position. Commencement speaker Ellen Bryant Voigt surprised everyone by unveiling a poem not included in the printed remarks, while senior speaker Will Mees used neuroscience to contextualize what he will remember of his time at Marlboro.
A minor power snafu temporarily interrupted recording of the commencement during President Ellen McCulloch-Lovell's remarks, but otherwise the complete 2 hour, 10 minute ceremony can be seen by clicking on the above link or by ordering a DVD ($15.00) by emailing Teresa Storti or by calling 802-258-9273.
