35 Commencements at Bentley make for a large number of stories! One of my favorites was my proud moment as a Bentley administrator and father when I had the honor of presenting my youngest daughter, Emily ’11, with her diploma. As she walked across the stage to receive the diploma case, she reached out for a big hug, which I was happy to oblige. In front of more than 6,000 people, to our initial horror and then sheer delight, we realized that I had knocked off her cap and almost knocked her down. One of her best friend’s father was able to capture the moment from the audience! Commencement has never been the same for me!
