Congratulations to all of the University of Vermont students who will be graduating this weekend at UVM's 207th Commencement Ceremonies.

This year's commencement speaker will be Billie Jean King, the tennis legend and adovocate for women's equal participation in sports and society. King is probably most famous for routing former men's Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs in three straight sets, in the 1973 "Battle of the Sexes." No doubt, she will inspire graduates to push past obstacles, challenge the status quo, and reach for their dreams.

Champlain College graduates already threw up their caps on May 7. Burlington College on May 14.

Hats off to our 2011 graduates!
