Graduation Speech – Distinguished Alumnus, Geoffrey Mark ’85

Graduates, professors, family and friends. Graduation speeches such as this are usually filled with advice to the newly matriculated. Advice coming from experiences and adventures enjoyed so far in the past that they have little bearing on what these young people here today might be facing. So, today, I’m not going to do that.
