2011 Honorary Degree Luncheon  

Following an invocation by Professor Emeritus Raymond Williams H’68, President Pat White offered a toast to the three men receiving honorary degrees on Sunday—Bob Charles ’59, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, and Dr. Walter Massey.

"Gentlemen, Wabash is proud to honor you today," White said. "From a broad array of careers and walks of life you each in your own way have lived lives committed to the liberal arts ideals of critical thinking, reflection, and engagement in service. All three of you have distinguished yourselves in the life of the mind, heart, and spirit we foster at Wabash.

"You have taken your commitments and your thinking into a complex world where men and women take action for the common good. For the courage and the indefatigable dedication to the work of leadership in all its complexity, for your commitment to the liberal arts, for your achievements, and for your lives well lived as models for our students, we salute you with gratitude and joy."
