2011 Centre College Commencement
On Sunday, May 22, 267 students received their degrees from Centre College.
The commencement speakers for the College’s 188th commencement ceremony were Dr. Lee T. Todd, president of the University of Kentucky, and Dr. T. Pearse Lyons, founder and CEO of Alltech. Both received an honorary doctor of humane letters degree from Centre during the ceremony.
Todd called upon graduates to “choose challenge over comfort,” take risks, strive for a higher purpose and dream big. Lyons asked the students to remember to “dream, dare, desire, decide and dedicate” as they face their future.
