Former Pres. George H.W. Bush is this year’s commencement speaker.


From the press release, which sums things up more efficiently than I could:

“George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, will present Bryant University’s undergraduate Commencement address during ceremonies on Saturday, May 17.

Mr. Bush is one of four honorary degree recipients this year. The former president, along with Chinese entrepreneur Fan Jianchuan, developer of China’s largest private museum, and Roxanne Spillet, president and CEO of Boys and Girls Clubs of America, will receive honorary degrees on May 17. John Warren, chairman and CEO of Washington Trust and Washington Trust Bancorp, will present the keynote address and receive an honorary degree on Thursday, May 15, during the Graduate School Commencement ceremony.

Updates regarding Commencement 2008 will be posted on the Bryant Web site.”
