Marlboro College 66th Commencement
May 19, 2013

“You’re a group of students who have rejected traditional ways of knowing things," said commencement speaker Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin. "Creative, entrepreneurial, motivated, curious—you’re critical thinkers who have said 'yes' to a way of learning that only Marlboro offers." Shumlin told 59 members of the class of 2013 to look for more opportunities to say "yes," for the betterment of their lives, their communities, and their planet. Senior speaker Evan Lamb compared college to climbing a mountain and President Ellen McCulloch-Lovell challenged the concept of "return on investment" in higher education. Governor Shumlin and Julie Johnson Kidd, president of the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation, both received honorary degrees from Marlboro, and outgoing Dean of Students Ken Schneck delivered a poignant rendition of his seventh-grade poem titled "Why?"
