Skies Clear for Webster’s 92nd Commencement

| May 9, 2011

At 5:30 a.m. local time Saturday, storms threatened. At 6 a.m. the weather let up to a light rain. By 7 a.m. the radar and sky had cleared, making way for what was a beautiful, sunny day for Webster University’s 92nd commencement at the Muny in Forest Park.

Graduates from around the world attended the main commencement ceremony and ceremonies for each individual college and school. Former U.S. Senator Kit Bond gave the commencement address and received an honorary doctor of laws. Aldwyn Cooper, principal of Regent’s College, Webster’s partner university in London, received a doctor of humane letters. Webster alumna Mary Alice Dwyer-Dobbin ’63 also received a doctor of humane letters.

More importantly, thousands of Webster University students became graduates and Webster alumni.

Congratulations to the Class of 2011 (and their parents!), and many thanks to all the Webster employees who helped make the day a memorable success.

More photos are available at Webster’s Facebook page. More notes from the day will appear in the days to come.

    Yes, memorable indeed! Though your commencement video has no voice (sound); why? Does this defeat the purpose or not; or is it deliberate?
