The late arrival of spring in Maine increased the likelihood of trees blossoming for Commencement, scheduled for May 27 this year. The Class of 2007, 475 strong, elected the energetic Kate Braemer ’07 as class speaker and lined up Nobel laureate economist Thomas C. Schelling to speak at the College’s 186th Commencement. Braemer was captain of the women’s woodsmen, an admissions volunteer, COOT leader, CCAK mentor, and senior pledge volunteer, among other activities. Novelist John Barth, former Nigerian Minister of Finance Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, saxophonist Sonny Rollins, Whitney Museum Director Adam Weinberg, and Schelling were slated to get honorary degrees. Details, including video, were set to go online following the ceremonies. See
