Guest Speaker

Louise McClure of Boise is Idaho Sen. James A. McClure’s widow. She and her husband are distinguished alumni and regarded amongst the state’s very best citizens. Louise earned a bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Idaho in 1950, she also received a honorary doctor of Humane Letters in 2012, was a member of the Vandaleers and a member of Delta Delta Delta sorority. Louise was a partner in her late husband’s career, which began as the Payette County prosecuting attorney and culminated as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. She also contributed countless volunteer hours to a number of organizations, including service on the National Endowment for the Arts Council and the Boise Philharmonic Board. She continues to be a relevant voice in Idaho, penning op-eds and promoting the ideas and opinions she and her husband shared. Both Jim and Louise approached his high profile profession with passionate dedication to Idaho and the nation, but always in a calm, reasoned and factual manner. He could be tough, but never nasty; opinionated, but never unwilling to listen to another point of view. It was with this background, his penchant for public policy, and the significant contributions to the university, state and nation that the University of Idaho renamed its Bureau of Public Affairs Research as the James A. and Louise McClure Center for Public Policy Research in 2007. Louise McClure

The McClures have served on the University of Idaho Foundation and the College of Law Advisory Board. They have been members of the University’s College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences Advancement Council and the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival Advisory Board. In 2001, they established the James and Louise McClure Endowment for the Sciences and Public Policy. In 2005, they received the University of Idaho President’s Medallion in recognition of their contributions to the cultural, economic, scientific and social advancement of Idaho and its people, and their exceptional service to the state and nation. In October 2007, they served as grand marshals for the University’s Homecoming parade. The McClure’s passion for service recalls a comment by President John Quincy Adams who said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

H o n o r a ry D e g r e e An honorary degree is awarded to a person deserving of honor by virtue of scholarly distinction, noteworthy public service or significant contributions to the state of Idaho. In the selection of candidates for honorary degrees, preference is given to those who are Idaho residents or University of Idaho graduates.

Sue Hovey of Moscow Idaho, began her schooling in Texas, but she became an educational fixture in Idaho once she completed her bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Idaho in 1968. Over the years, she not only earned her Master of Arts in sociology from UI in 1978, she continued to teach American government and sociology as well as served both gifted and at-risk students in Moscow School District from 1968 through 1996. However, those 28 years at Moscow High School and Moscow Junior High School are only the tip of the iceberg of her educational influence. Her local, state, national and international activities always reflected her devotion to education and service to others. As a teacher, she has been awarded numerous times, recognized locally as Moscow High School’s Teacher of the Year, University of Idaho‘s Outstanding Alumna; statewide as Outstanding Idaho Teacher, IEA’s recipient of the Shane Anderson Outstanding Member Award, and the IEA Region II’s Nora Davis Baily Award for Educational Service; and nationally as a winner of The Disney American Teacher Award which honors outstanding teachers who inspire the joy of learning in America’s public schools. Sue also was recognized as the Idaho Outstanding Teacher by the University of Idaho at the 1990 centennial celebration. Sue has not only served in various capacities in local association positions, political committees, and community activities, she has held a wide variety of positions at the state level: Moscow Education Association president, Idaho Professional Standards Commission chair, Idaho Education Association board of directors, member of Idaho’s Special Education Advisory Board, member of NASDTEC Accreditation Teams, conference planner and presenter for the Idaho Department of Education, and member of Public Education and Policy Review Task Force. On the national level, Sue served on the National Education Association board of directors for 12 years, rose to the esteemed position of Executive Committee member. For many years she traveled around the U. S. serving on committees for Ethnic Minority Involvement, for the Martin Luther King Center for Non-Violence, for AIDS policies for the Centers for Disease Control, and as a keynote speaker at conferences in Arizona, Ohio, Arkansas, Utah, Florida, Washington, Idaho as well as lending her voice to educational policy questions in North Carolina, New Jersey, Georgia, Wyoming, Alaska and Illinois. Her work on the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, however, is her shining achievement. Due to Sue’s prominence and voice in the national education debates and her success as a classroom teacher, she was asked to be a member of the charter board of directors for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 1986, and continued on the board from then until 1993. In 1998, Sue Hovey became adjunct professor at UI as one of the facilitators of the North Idaho NBPTS Project, a position she held until spring of 2013. Since 1998, Sue has shepherded more than 200 teachers through the complex National Board Certification process.

University of Idaho President’s Medallion The President’s Medallion is presented at University of Idaho Commencement Ceremonies in May and December. Recipients are individuals who have made significant contributions to the cultural, economic, scientific and/or social advancement of Idaho and its people, and have provided exceptional service to the state or nation that has influenced the wellbeing of humankind.

University of Idaho – Moscow Thomas Reveley of Bainbridge Island, Wash. is a 1959 University of Idaho graduate and wealth management leader. He originally intended to join the Navy after high school, but he followed the sage advice of a supervisor at a Southern California nursery who encouraged him to study forestry at the University of Idaho. It was upon this foundation and education at the university that Reveley built his success. Tom graduated with a degree in forestry, and embarked on a career that first took him to Weyerhauser, a leader in the timberlands and wood-products industries. In New York City, Reveley joined Merrill Lynch as a commodity analyst. He continued his service with Merrill Lynch after he and his wife, Teita, moved back to the Northwest, settling in the Seattle area in 1972. Currently, he is a wealth management adviser and managing director of wealth management in Merrill Lynch’s Pension & Profit Sharing Unit in the Global Wealth Management Division. Reveley credits the University of Idaho for a “critical” role in his professional success, citing the unique environment at the home campus in Moscow. The Reveleys have stayed involved with Tom’s alma mater — supporting an array of scholarship funds and programs. It would be hard to find an area of university life the couple hasn’t supported through the years. A former member of the UI Foundation board of directors, Tom has contributed to athletics, to the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival, the President’s Leadership Excellence Fund, to a number of facilities projects, and more. Passionate about ensuring the success of future students, the Reveleys established the Thomas L. and Teita Reveley Scholarship Endowment. The new Geospatial Education and Research Complex at the College of Natural Resources also bears the Reveley name, a testament to their commitment to the innovative project centered on earth system science.

The weekends and summers were busy buying supplies and making the dressing in the Hope restaurant, and then going on the road selling the products store to store. Doug trained as a chef at his father’s side, where he learned at a very young age not only how to prepare food, but also how people react to the presentation of food and how to interpret various philosophies on food. Doug has managed/owned several restaurants leading up to the full time focus on the dressing business in 1976. Doug has authored articles in Success and Entrepreneur Magazine, as well as a chapter in the book “Executive Influence” by Christopher A. Crane and Mike Hamel. Doug is a former Sandpoint city councilman, and a founding board member of the Bonner County Economic Development Council. He also served on the University of Idaho College of Education Advisory Board. Doug and his brother, Edward, initiated the Eric Kirkland HPERD Scholarship Endowment, gifted the College of Education with funds to provide new equipment for the UI Human Performance Lab and contributed funds for the Litehouse Center/Bud and June Ford Club Room in the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center. Doug and his wife, Lodi, enjoy traveling and spending time with their six children and 14 grandchildren.

Edward Hawkins is a lifelong veteran of Litehouse Foods and served as CEO from 1989-2011. Edward was born in Pullman, Wash. and grew up in Hope, Idaho, where he worked in the family restaurant. His first official Litehouse job was as a mixer in the production department. He received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the University of Idaho. After college and a short time as an elementary teacher, Edward, then 25 years old, stepped in and made the dressing business a priority when his father’s illness forced the restaurant to close. In 1977, he became financial manager and in 1985, added responsibility for all operations. He continues to be instrumental in growing Litehouse and fostering the company vision: “Built to Last.” He served on the boards of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Bonner County Economic Development Council. He has a gift and passion for motivational roles, and has been the keynote speaker at numerous events, including Greater Spokane Area Chamber of Commerce, and the University of Idaho Integrated Business Curriculum series (IBC). Edward is a cowboy at heart and enjoys trail rides, time with his family and serving God. When asked what his new role at Litehouse is, he proudly responds: “Keeper of Values.” Edward and his brother, Doug, initiated the Eric Kirkland HPERD Scholarship Endowment, gifted the College of Education with funds to provide new equipment for the UI Human Performance Lab and contributed funds for the Litehouse Center/Bud and June Ford Club Room in the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center. Edward and his wife, Rebecca, have four children: Elizabeth, Christopher, Nicholas, Brandon, and grandson, Ashlei.

The WWAMI Medical Education Program is offered in partnership between the University of Washington School of Medicine and the host universities throughout the five-state regional system. Medical students from Idaho complete their first year of medical training at the University of Idaho, Moscow campus, and then complete the remainder of their medical training in Seattle, Boise, rural Idaho communities, or training sites throughout the WWAMI region. The UI WWAMI Program is offered jointly with the Washington State University WWAMI Program and offers first-year medical students the opportunities of training with the combined biomedical faculties, while making use of the teaching, research and training facilities on both campuses. UI WWAMI students also complete their first clinical training rotations with local physicians, clinics and hospitals in Moscow and the Palouse.

Significance

of

A c a d e m i c A pp a r e l

and

Mace

By observing certain features of the academic apparel, it is possible to learn several things about the academic status of the scholar: the level of the degree attained, the branch of learning in which it was earned, and the college or university conferring the degree.

Gowns

The gowns differ according to the level of the degree. The sleeves are the principal indicator – gowns of bachelors have pointed sleeves; those of masters have oblong sleeves with an arc cut away at the front; and doctors have round, bell-shaped sleeves. Bachelor’s and master’s gowns are untrimmed. Doctoral gowns have distinctive velvet facing down the front and three velvet bars on each sleeve.

Caps

The color of the tassel worn on the cap varies with the level of degree. The bachelor’s tassel represents the color appropriate to the major field of study; the master’s and specialist’s tassels are black; and the doctoral tassels are old gold.

Hoods

The length of the hood also varies according to the level of degree. The bachelor’s gown is worn without a hood. A master’s hood is three and one-half feet long, and a doctor’s hood is four feet in length and has panels at the sides. It is from the colors adorning the hood that one can learn two other facts. Lining – the hood is lined with the official color or colors of the college or university conferring the degree (silver and gold, signifying the University of Idaho). Trimming – the hood is trimmed with velvet of a color appropriate to the wearer’s branch of learning. For example, the trimming for the degree of Master of Science in Agriculture is maize, representing agriculture, rather than golden yellow, representing science. In the case of the Doctor of Philosophy degree, the dark blue color is used, representing the mastery of the discipline of learning and scholarship, regardless of the branch of learning. Colors associated with the different disciplines are as follows: Music Pink Nursing Apricot Oratory (Speech) Silver Gray Pharmacy Olive Green Philosophy Dark Blue Physical Education Sage Green Public Administration Peacock Blue Public Health Salmon Pink Science Golden Yellow Social Work Citron Theology Scarlet Veterinary Science (DVM) Gray

Agriculture Maize Arts, Letters, Humanities White Commerce, Accountancy, Business Drab Dentistry Lilac Economics Copper Education Light Blue Engineering Orange Fine Arts, including Architecture Brown Forestry Russet Journalism Crimson Law Purple Library Science Lemon Medicine Green

Honor Cords

Honor Cords, worn around the neck and hanging loosely down the front, identify students who are graduating with honors: gold, summa cum laude (with highest distinction); silver, magna cum laude (with great distinction); and bronze, cum laude (with distinction). The cords are provided by the University of Idaho and are worn on this one occasion only.

The University of Idaho adopted a doctoral gown of its own in 1989. The silver gown has a panel and sleeve bars of black velvet outlined in antique gold. The beret-style soft cap is patterned after the Cambridge version instead of the traditional Oxford-style mortarboard. The cap and gown were designed by Emeritus Professor Edmund Chavez in the university’s centennial year and is worn today by faculty serving as officials at the university commencements.

The mace, a heavy staff or club used in medieval times for breaking armor, acquired a ceremonial function in 13th-century France as a symbol of secular authority. The University of Idaho mace — designed by Edmund M. Chavez, professor emeritus, with metal work by Idaho artist Ray Goodner — was used for the first time at the 1989 centennial commencement. It is 32 inches long, made of walnut, and encircled with bands of Idaho gold and silver in which Idaho garnets and opals are set. The head is embellished with silver and gold representations of camas plants and syringa flowers.

To enrich education through diversity, the University of Idaho does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, or status as a Vietnam-era veteran in employment or in admission to or the operation of its educational program and activities, as required by state and federal laws and regulation. Inquiries may be directed to the university’s Office of Human Rights, Access and Inclusion.

“ H e r e W e H av e I d a h o ” 1 Alma Mater, the hope of a pioneer race; You’re fashioned of dreams and of toil, Your walls and your towers by stout-hearted men Were raised from the rock and the soil. Chorus And here we have Idaho, Winning her way to fame; Silver and Gold in the sunlight blaze, And romance lies in her name; Singing, we’re singing of you, ah, proudly too; All our lives through we’ll go singing, Singing of you, Alma Mater, our Idaho.

2 Now ours is the heritage, rich and so full, The gain of their toil and their tears; And ours is the fruit, and the harvest is ours, Oh, Idaho, gift of the years. Chorus And here we have Idaho, Winning her way to fame; Silver and Gold in the sunlight blaze, And romance lies in her name; Singing, we’re singing of you, ah, proudly too; All our lives through we’ll go singing, Singing of you, Alma Mater, our Idaho.
