GREEK CONVOCATION SPEECH
September 16, 2016
Thank you for that introduction. I’m honored to be here tonight. I’ve been to the chapel before. I even got married in this chapel many years ago.
But I’ve never been at this podium.
I teach classes, run programs and give speeches at Duke all the time, but I’ve never had a chance to speak to so many students at once and certainly not in the chapel.
So this is a new experience for me. I mean it when I say I’m honored to be here tonight with all of you.
I hope to honor you back by sharing with a few stories and lessons learned from my life. I hope to give you something to think about, something to talk about with your friends and perhaps something that will influence your life here at Duke and life beyond Duke.
