Boise State recognized spring graduates in its largest ceremony to date on Saturday, May 17, in Taco Bell Arena.
The student speaker was Jamie Lundergreen, president of the Honors Student Association, who graduated with a dual bachelor’s degree in Spanish and psychology.
Student Speaker Introduction
“After graduation we are not off the hook. Our commentary doesn’t end here. Boise State has given us the tools to face the challenge walls in our future.” Jamie Lundergreen
An honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree awarded to Marilyn Shuler, former director of the Idaho Human Rights Commission, drew lengthy applause from the crowd. Shuler, who earned her master of public administration degree at Boise State in 1978, is known for her untiring efforts on behalf of human rights.
“Often universities give this award to famous people, or people who have made a large gift – I would like to think that Boise State is making a statement that it values human rights. Congratulations to all of you. You are among the seven percent of the world’s population with a college degree. You can make the world a better place.” Marilyn Shuler
