Monmouth College Remembers President George H.W. Bush; Spoke at 2000 Graduation Ceremony

The passing of President George H.W. Bush over the weekend is particularly bittersweet for members of the Monmouth College Class of 2000. On the afternoon of May 14th, 2000, President Bush delivered the commencement address before record numbers of news media and community members. They joined a seated crowd of 2,500 that included family and friends of the 221 members of the Monmouth Class of 2000.
