Smiles Abound at Commencement 2000-Colby's 179th

President Bill Cotter (top left) was made an honorary member of the Class of 2000 last September, and he and Linda Cotter received honorary doctor of laws degrees at commencement on May 21. The rest of the class, including Diane Carr of Alton, N.H. (bottom right), received bachelors degrees. Erik Bowie (top right), of Carbondale, Colo., the senior class speaker, drew on talents honed as a member of Colby Improv. He said he would miss three meals a day, a roof over his head and his extra-long twin bed with sheets that didn't fit. After Father Philip Tracy noted the irony of a Bates graduate (himself) getting the last word at a Colby graduation and offered his benediction, the celebration began (bottom left).
