Speech at Spring Convocation Professor Heather Munroe-Blum Delivered at Spring Convocation Chancellor, Chairman, Chancellor Emerita, Chancellor Emeritus, our distinguished honourary degree recipients, special guests, esteemed colleagues, proud family and friends, and, graduating class of Welcome to you all.
As Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill University, it is my great privilege to welcome you here today to the lawns of our beautiful campus for this spring convocation. I know that some of you who are here as guests once graduated on these very lawns.
This will be my final convocation season as 16th Principal of McGill University. Every year, for more than 10 years, I have had the privilege of seeing you, our McGill students, complete this major chapter in your lives and embark on a new one.
Graduating students, today is truly a momentous day in your lives, a day of celebration that you will look back on and remember always. As McGill students, you have worked very hard, without question. You have sacrificed much. But, as tough as it may sometimes be to be a McGill student, from time to time it can be even tougher to be a family member or close friend of a McGill student.
And so, Graduating Class ofI ask you to join with me in expressing our great appreciation to those who have helped you reach this day. To say "thank you" is an enriching act. Serving McGill, serving you, has been in every single day, an exceptional honour for me. I have had you, wonderful students, to inspire me.
I have had an outstanding team of academic and administrative colleagues, and volunteers, who show unparalleled devotion to McGill and our cause. Today is a time to think about the You who walked onto our campus those few years ago, and the You who will walk off our campus later today.
Today is a time to reflect on What you will hold on to, and What shall now be set aside. I too have a list of things to hold on to — to remember, and to keep in my heart. I will remember the power of one. I will remember that a single person can change the course of events — and in so doing, make a positive difference to the lives of others.
Each of you is such a person. I will remember that I am not alone.
Together, we are greater than we are as any one individual. Collective effort is the key to progress. Whether tackling personal problems or planetary problems, we are smarter, stronger, better, together. I will remember who inspired me. My great Aunt Bonnie, who came from a poor, rural, single parent family in dust belt Illinois, and moved on, as a single woman, to became a fashion illustrator in New York in the s.
She was my girlhood role-model for knowing that no matter what your initial circumstances, you can shape a positive path forward. Remember who gave you strength. Keep them in your heart.
And now, graduating class ofyou are about to join a second family, a family of McGill alumni that includes overpeople worldwide, including our Chancellor, Arnold Steinberg, and our Chairman, Kip Cobbett. Graduating class, as you leave our Convocation ceremony later today, know that as alumni, you will carry the good name of McGill with you everywhere you go.Admission Procedure (leslutinsduphoenix.com1 to 9): Admission is granted based on merit in qualifying examination marks.
