In her remarks to graduates, President Mary Sue Coleman recalls alumni who made a difference, from Raoul Wallenberg, who rescued 100,000 from the Nazi death camps, to Lyman Johnson, the grandson of slaves who helped desegregate higher education in Kentucky. “You will make a difference with your advocacy, your inventions, and your initiative, because these are the trademarks of leaders,” she said.
