You know what they say about a picture.
This one was taken by Don Kirkpatrick '55, whose grandson Michael Burgart is one among this sea of faces, black-robed and hopeful.
Commencement, of course, is the ceremony that bridges your four years on campus and the rest of your lives. It's what makes you alumni. It's our job to make sure that Lehigh crosses the bridge along with you, and remains an important part of your life—every day!
We're grateful to Don for passing down his affection for Lehigh—and to Michael for carrying on the tradition.
Carrying a Lehigh diploma with them out into the world will make an enormous difference for Michael and his classmates. And the support of our loyal alumni is what makes that impact possible. If you've been meaning to make a gift in support of Lehigh's mission-in support of the Class of 2009 and all the classes to follow—the remaining days in June would be a wonderful time to do so. Our fiscal year ends at the end of the month, and every gift matters.
Please visit giving.lehigh.edu
to make your gift online, or call the Lehigh Fund office, at (610) 758-4673.
Thank you for your support.
Robert W. Wolfenden
Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations
