Roy Peter Clark ’70 & ’17Hon. – God writes straight with crooked lines

We have to wait a few months to hear this year’s Commencement speaker, so listen to a rebroadcast of the rousing speech by Roy Peter Clark ’70 & ’17Hon., the retired senior scholar at The Poynter Institute, a journalism school in St. Petersburg, Fla. Like the Class of 2020, the Class of 1970’s final spring semester was cut short. He celebrates the 50th anniversary of their graduation this year, although in-person reunion events have been postponed.

Clark wrote a message to the Class of 2020 after the decision to postpone their Commencement was announced.
