Levett graduates from Colorado College

Elliott Levett graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in International Political Economy from Colorado College. Levett, from Fraser, is a graduate of Middle Park High School.

Colorado College awarded 566 undergraduate degrees at its 132nd commencement, held May 19, outdoors on Armstrong Quad.

Jane Lubchenco, first woman to serve as the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), gave the commencement address, titled “From Rats to Sharks: Tales of Public Service.” She is a 1969 graduate of Colorado College.

“You millennials – because of your numbers and attitudes – are positioned to have immense influence on our country,” Lubchenco told the graduating class. “You will elect the next six presidents of the United States. You will be the problem solvers and the leaders.” She advised the Class of 2014 to be willing to take risks, be ready to challenge conventional wisdom, and give back to society through public service.
