The tradition of special ceremonies at Trinity dates back, in my era anyways, to Noelle Stockman (now MacGregor), who was ASR VP and a softball player. She is a regular reader of my blog too! She insisted that President Brazil do her honors under similar circumstances. That was in his office in the old Northrup. Nice tradition Noellie.
President Ahlburg was on top of his game at this year's ceremony, comparing himself to an umpire by calling the graduates "safe" after he conferred their degrees. He also suggested that the audience sing "Take me out to the Ballgame" rather than the Alma Mater. Not bad for an Aussie who loves Cricket.
