Honorary Degree Recipients Announced

Dear Knox Community,

It is my privilege today to announce this year’s honorary degree recipients, who will receive their degrees at the College’s Commencement exercises on June 3. In addition to our Commencement speaker Knox alumnus and India’s premier comedian Vir Das, Knox will confer honorary degrees on Mary Meg McCarthy, the executive director of Heartland Alliance’s National Immigrant Justice Center, and Michael W. Young, American geneticist and 2017 Nobel Prize Winner. You can read more about all three distinguished recipients on the Knox website.

Please join me in thanking the Honorary Degree Subcommittee for their work selecting this year’s degree recipients.
