Commencement | May 2008: Commencement Review

Commencement: Sunday, May 18, 2008

Nearly 400 Graduate at Trinity’s 105th Commencement

A steady drizzle did not dampen the spirits of nearly 400 graduates at Trinity’s 105th Commencement ceremony. More than 3,000 guests gathered for the ceremony on Trinity’s campus on Sunday, May 18.  In her Commencement address, D.C. author and journalist Jonetta Rose Barras stressed to the graduates the importance of “protecting and developing your personal humanity; nurturing your own and others’ dignity; and creating an intimate society in an era of superficial communications. These I believe are critical to nurturing and nourishing the soul.  And without soul, everything else loses its meaning in life.”  Barras, a 1996 graduate of Trinity’s Weekend College program, received an honorary doctor of letters.
