AMHERST, Mass. — Under cloudless blue skies today, Amherst College President Biddy Martin urged the 470 members of the class of 2015 to follow the example of famous alumnus and legal activist Charles Hamilton Houston and restore faith in our society’s institutions by remaking them. “Take your talents, your energy and your humane hearts and do your best to combine right meaning with deeds,” she said. “And while you are at it, cherish your families, your friends and, most of all, yourselves.”
