Henry ’03 and Colleges Commencement Featured in Post-Gazette

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette columnist Reg Henry wrote a column titled “A celestial sign of changing times,” published in both the Post-Gazette and the Norristown, Pa., Times Herald, about his daughter Allison's graduation from William Smith May 11. Henry wrote, “As a manly sort of fellow, I am not much for crying, reserving it for occasions such as being left with a large check in restaurants, but I fought back tears when I saw Allison come down the center aisle in her cap and gown, so confident and beautiful. On the swirl of pipes, parents all over the hall doubtless were being transported back to what seemed magically like yesterday — when their child came to college as a nervous freshman four years ago.” Henry hailed the let-up of rain after the ceremony as a good omen.
