At Icon, he worked on various features across all genres, including Braveheart, Maverick, Immortal Beloved, Anna Karenina, Payback, 187 and We Were Soldiers. Additionally, he produced several television projects, including the highly rated The Three Stooges for ABC and Invincible for TBS.

In 2002, Lemley teamed with Ridley and Tony Scott to executive produce the medieval romance Tristan and Isolde. In 2005, he partnered with Bonnie Curtis to executive produce the Wes Craven thriller Red Eye.

University of Idaho – Boise Linda Copple Trout holds the distinction of being the first woman appointed to the Idaho Supreme Court, where she served for 15 years, including two terms as chief justice. Trout retired from the court in 2007 to protest increasingly politicized elections for high-court justices. She praised the collegiality among justices during her tenure, “. . . And I think that’s the way it should be — judges are nonpartisan.” Trout earned three degrees at Idaho — marketing, management and law — and praised the foundational value of her experiences during seven years on campus. “Attending the University of Idaho challenged my thinking and caused me to look at issues and problems in different ways,” Trout said. “I was exposed to diverse people, concepts and ideas, which continually reaffirmed the importance of keeping an open mind. As a judge, this ability to look at all Linda Copple Trout sides of an issue is invaluable. My campus experience certainly contributed to my leadership abilities when I was selected to serve as the chief justice.” Upon graduation from law school in 1979, Trout joined the Lewiston law firm of Blake, Feeney & Clark, where she was engaged in private practice before her appointment to the position of magistrate judge in Idaho’s Second Judicial District. From 1987 through 1991, she assumed additional responsibilities as the acting Trial Court administrator for the five counties of north-central Idaho. In 1990, she was elected as a district judge and handled cases in Nez Perce and Clearwater counties. In August 1992, Trout was appointed by Gov. Cecil Andrus to be the first woman justice on the Idaho Supreme Court. She was twice elected by the Supreme Court to the position of chief justice. Trout is a member of the Idaho State Bar Association, and the American Inns of Court and has previously served on a number of boards of directors as well as statewide administrative, judicial and bar committees. She has served on the College of Law Advisory Committee to the dean and inspired law students as an adjunct faculty member through courses she has taught at the University of Idaho in family law.

University of Idaho – Idaho Falls Former U.S. Senator Larry Craig took an unlikely path to national prominence. He began his education in the one-room South Crane School near his family’s ranch at Midvale, Idaho. But, by the time he graduated from Midvale High, Craig had become a prize-winning speechmaker, who also was active in Future Farmers of America and sang in the choir. He embraced larger life at the University of Idaho and won his election as student body president and was an active member of Delta Chi fraternity. He left Moscow with a bachelor’s degree in political science and a minor in agricultural economics. He pursued graduate studies in U.S. foreign policy at George Washington University.

Larry Craig

Craig soon entered politics and was elected in 1974 to the first of three terms in the Idaho Senate. By 1980 he had been elected to an open seat in the U.S. House of Representatives where he supported President Reagan’s push for vocational education and where, as a member of the Mining Subcommittee of the Interior Committee, he worked to block the demise of the 1872 mining law.

Elected to the U.S. Senate in 1990, Craig rose to prominence and power. In 2007, he declined to run for reelection and left the Senate in 2009 — his 28 years in Congress second in Idaho only to Sen. William Borah’s 32 years. As a senator, Craig championed public land resource issues and was influential in writing and passing the Energy Policy Acts of 2005 and 2007. In 2009 Craig and his longtime Senate chief-of-staff Michael Ware opened the lobbying firm New West Strategies. Clients include coal mining giant Murray Energy and outdoor group Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife.

University of Idaho – Coeur d’Alene A member of the Nez Perce Tribe, JoAnn Harvey is an Idaho Native in the deepest sense, and sharing the value and benefits of education have been an important driver in her career. Growing up around Lapwai, Harvey went off to earn a bachelor’s degree in education from Eastern Washington University, followed by a master’s in organizational leadership from Gonzaga University. She is nothing if not organized, and a leader. Harvey has held every office for the Coeur d’Alene Education Association from building representative to president. She also has been deeply involved in the Region 1 Idaho Education Association that covers the state’s five northern counties. She became well-known nationally while chair of the National Education Association’s American Indian/Native Alaskan caucus for her efforts to train a spotlight on raising graduation rates for indigenous students. JoAnn Harvey

Harvey organized the NEA’s first American Indian/Native Alaskan Issues Conference, which was held at the Coeur d’Alene Resort and Casino in June 2003. The conference has since been held twice more, in 2005 and 2009. She has also devoted six years to the NEA’s Human and Civil Rights Committee, along with a myriad of others, and was selected as a delegate to Education International conferences in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in 2002, Berlin in 2006 and Cape Town, South Africa, in 2011. Perhaps an extension of her concern for indigenous and minority education, Harvey for the last 20 years has been involved with the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations, she is the immediate past president, and also serves on the board of a sister organization, the Human Rights Education Institute, since it was formed in 1998. She still teaches as a physical education specialist for the Coeur d’Alene School District, where she began work in 1986. Harvey ran unsuccessfully for the Idaho Senate in 2000 and 2002 with one of her campaign goals to increase education funding in the state. She has a black belt in Tang Soo Do, four adult children, six grandsons and a granddaughter.

University of Idaho – Moscow, College of Law Candy Wagahoff Dale is a trailblazer in Idaho. She broke a 118-year tradition of a male-only federal bench when she was appointed chief United States magistrate judge for the District of Idaho in March 2008. The Boise native and Borah High graduate took a roundabout path to the bench, originally attending the College of Idaho, where she was a Gipson Scholar, to study English and math. It was after a semester spent at Oxford University in England as part of an exchange program that she enrolled in a political science class and asked her math adviser about attending law school. “They virtually signed me up for the LSAT,” Dale has said, adding that her adviser told her, “the logic of mathematics was a perfect foundation for law.” After graduating with honors from the College of Idaho in 1979 with a bachelor’s degree, Dale enrolled in the University of Idaho College of Law. Candy Wagahoff Dale She served as editor-in-chief of the Law Review, received the Idaho Law Foundation Scholarship for 1981-82 and graduated with a doctorate of law degree and in the top 10 in her class in 1982. She was one of fewer than 20 women in her graduating class. She served at two law firms in Boise and became known as a highly respected trial attorney in business litigation and employment law. She has served in numerous professional organizations. She is past president of the American Inn of the Court No. 130 (Boise), board of directors for the Federal Defender Services of Idaho, lawyer representative to the Ninth Circuit Conference of United States Courts, a member of the Ninth Circuit’s Advisory Board and a member of the Gender Fairness and Long Range Planning committees for the Idaho U.S. District. Dale also serves with the federal court’s START (Success Through Assisted Recover and Treatment) program and is a member of the Idaho Pro Bono Commission. Dale was honored with the Kate Feltham Award in 2010 by the Idaho Women Lawyers for “promoting equal rights and opportunities for women and minorities in the legal profession.” She met her husband, Jim Dale, while at the College of Law. The couple has one daughter, Lindsay.

H o n o r a ry D e g r e e s 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.

Will an academic hood fit over a cowboy hat? That’s the question of the moment as the University of Idaho recognizes one of the state’s most distinctive and generous citizens, Harry Bettis, with an honorary doctorate of Administrative Science. Bettis is a fourth-generation Idahoan who, as a child, was sent by his parents to the California Preparatory School, a prestigious boarding school, and who graduated from Stanford with a degree in business. But he soon returned to join the family endeavors. He took over the family ranch along the Wood River and has ever since been a cattleman with Idaho dirt on his boots and a signature cowboy hat atop his head. The operation has grown into a partnership with his three daughters.

Harry Bettis

Bettis’ business interests include banking and oil distribution. He is a greatgrandson, on his father’s side, of C.W. Moore, founder of Idaho First National Bank. Bettis has served on the Idaho First National (now U.S. Bank) board of directors since 1971 and has also been on the board of directors of U.S. Bankcorp.

During his Stanford years, Bettis changed his middle name to Little to reflect his heritage on his mother’s side and honor the connection to his grandfather, Andrew Little, dubbed the “The Sheep King of Idaho.” It was Little, Bettis has said, who taught him how to work. Bettis, who remains unpretentious and candid, has also continued a family tradition of channeling wealth into the Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, named for his great aunt. The foundation, of which he is president, is one of Idaho’s most powerful and supports major programming for Idaho Public Television, as well as supporting programs, student scholarships and capital improvements at the University of Idaho and other state universities. The foundation’s service and contributions to the University of Idaho alone total more than $7 million. Bettis is a member of the Peregrine Fund, dedicated to protecting Idaho’s birds of prey, and has supported the Hornocker Wildlife Institute which works to promote understanding of issues that relate to threatened and endangered species. Bettis is also part of an all-Idaho ownership group that last spring returned a full season of horse racing to Boise’s Les Bois Park for the first time in nearly three years.

U n i v e r s i t y o f I d a ho 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 – Boise J. Patrick McMurray is a third-generation native Idahoan who was raised in Boise. He served much of his career with First Security Bank and retired in 2007 following a 37-year tenure with the company. At 39, McMurray was named president of the Idaho bank where he served on the First Security Corporation Management Committee with oversight responsibility for regional banking spanning a seven-state territory. From the First Security merger with Wells Fargo in 2000 until his retirement, McMurray held the position of Idaho Region president. He received a bachelor’s degree in business finance from the University of Idaho in 1970, and completed additional graduate work at the National Graduate School of Commercial Lending, University of Oklahoma, and is a graduate of the Pacific Coast Banking School, University of Washington. McMurray served as a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s Salt Lake City branch from January 1996 through December 2002 and chaired the branch’s Audit Committee for 1999-2002. He also served on the Idaho Banker’s Association Executive Committee and The Financial Services Roundtable, a banking industry association that represents the top 125 bank holding companies in the country. He is recognized for a long history of dedication and leadership in not-for-profit organizations that range from social services to education and the arts. His service includes time on the board of Blue Cross of Idaho; president of Fundsy, Inc.; vice chairman of the board of directors, Idaho Community Reinvestment Corporation; Boise Art Museum Board chairman; chairman of the Salvation Army Advisory Board and chairman of the Idaho Business Council. McMurray continues to be active in community organizations, including service on the board of trustees of St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center where he serves as immediate past chairman and as a member of the executive committee. McMurray and his wife, Lisa, reside in Boise and Sun Valley. They are the parents of two adult sons, Tyler and Shawn.

University of Idaho – Idaho Falls Until his retirement at the end of 2012, David Hill had been deputy laboratory director for science and technology at the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory, where the focus on research has expanded to include alternative energy as well as nuclear energy and cleanup. His tenure was honored on the floor of Congress last year when Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson said, “Dave brought a wonderful vision and talent to INL and his imprint is visible in the new and improved facilities that INL scientists and engineers now use. Dave saw the unique role INL can play as our National Nuclear Laboratory and he helped demonstrate how INL’s capabilities could support important nuclear energy, nonproliferation and national security programs. Dave also helped bring an unmatched collection of world-renowned technical experts to Idaho to lead the nation’s nuclear energy programs. While serious budget challenges are staring every federal program in the face, Dave will leave the Idaho National Laboratory with a firm foundation.” Hill was responsible for the science and technology strategy for a lab whose research and development funding nearly doubled under his seven-year leadership to $1 billion for programs pertaining to nuclear energy, national and homeland security, and clean energy. An internationally acknowledged expert on nuclear reactor and fuel cycle issues, he has extensive experience in the area of international nuclear cooperation, working with the countries of both Western Europe and the former Soviet Union.

– 12 –

He joined the Idaho National Laboratory in 2005 from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he was associate laboratory director for energy and engineering sciences. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and a doctorate in mathematical physics from Imperial College, London University in his native United Kingdom, and a master’s of business administration from the University of Chicago. He and his wife, Georgia, are living in Boise.

University of Idaho – Coeur d’Alene Dennis (Denny) Davis left the University of Idaho with two degrees, a bachelor of science in 1973 and his juris doctorate degree in 1977. Then, he headed north, where he has been deeply involved in his adopted city of Coeur d’Alene for the last 35 years. Davis, who has specialized in real estate and development law for Witherspoon Kelley, also has served as a state senator and participates on two notable initiatives in the northern Idaho city: urban renewal and human rights. Davis was appointed to serve on the board of the urban renewal entity, the Lake City Development Corporation, in 2005 and has been board chair since 2008. The LCDC has helped reshape Coeur d’Alene, especially along its lakefront, with high-profile projects such as the education corridor, Midtown revival and, most recently, the redesign of venerable McEwen Field. In 1998, he was one of the founding members of the Human Rights Education Institute, an offshoot of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations. Davis was elected to the Idaho Legislature as a Democrat, serving in the state senate from 1989 to 1994 and as Assistant Minority Leader in 1993 and 1994. A key promise of his campaign was to challenge the construction of large-scale medical waste incinerators that would accept out-of-state waste. One was proposed for Hauser Lake. Davis won the support of Gov. Cecil Andrus for a moratorium and later successfully pushed a bill, it passed by one vote, limiting the scope of such incinerators. “Small communities in rural Western states should not be targeted as dumping grounds for large urban areas,” Davis said at the time. He was an Idaho State Bar appointee to the Idaho Judicial Council from 1999 to 2005. In 2010 he received the Idaho State Bar Association’s Professionalism Award. Davis also serves on the University of Idaho College of Law Advisory Council and the university’s Northern Advisory Board. Davis is a former member of the Coeur d’Alene city planning commission and currently serves on the board of Jobs Plus, (Kootenai County’s Economic Development Corporation).

U n i v e r s i t y o f I d a ho C e l e b r a t i n g O u r F i r s t D oc t o r a l D e g r e e s Pioneers in two of the higher realms of education at the University of Idaho — Doctor of Education and Doctor of Philosophy — are being honored today. Idaho granted its first doctor of education, or Ed.D., in 1962, with the first doctor of philosophy degrees, or Ph.D.s, awarded the year after. In the United States, the Ed.D. degree tends to be granted by the school of education of universities and is a terminal degree in education. The Ed.D. is recognized for appointment as a lecturer or professor in a university. It also may be recognized as preparation for administrative positions in education, such as superintendent of schools, human resource director, or school principal. The Ph.D. degree is the highest academic degree awarded by U.S. universities in most fields of study. The term “philosophy” does not refer solely to the field of philosophy. Rather, it is used in accordance with its original Greek meaning, “love of wisdom. The requirements for obtaining Ph.D.s and other research doctorates in the U.S. typically entail successful completion of pertinent classes, passing of a comprehensive examination, and defense of a dissertation. Idaho’s first Doctor of Education degrees were earned by:

Florence Aller In 1962, Florence Aller obtained the University’s first doctoral degree in education, specializing in guidance and counseling, with her thesis, “The role of the self concept in student marital adjustment.” She had previously graduated as valedictorian of her Hayes Teachers College class. She earned a master’s degree in home economics at Oregon State University in 1946. She and her husband, Alvin, moved to Nampa, Idaho, in 1949. The couple went on to join the faculty at Northwest Nazarene College. A decade later, the couple moved to Moscow where she became an assistant professor of home economics at the University of Idaho and focused her research on student marital adjustment and teenage marriage. Her dissertation was later published as an article, “Some Factors in Marital Adjustment and Academic Achievement of Married Students” in the March 1963 issue of what was then the Personnel and Guidance Journal and currently the Journal of Counseling & Development. She also had published “Historical Reflections: Idaho Home Economics Association” and “75 Years to Remember: Home Economics at the University of Idaho, 1902-1977.” Florence passed away in 1993. She and her late husband, who was a professor of botany at Idaho, both have memorial scholarships in their names at Northwest Nazarene University.

John Morford In 1963, John Morford earned the University’s second doctorate in education. He joined the education faculty at Seattle University in 1973 and has since retired. At Seattle University he was dean of the School of Education from 1973 to 1978. Under his leadership the Doctorate in Educational Leadership program, Seattle U’s only doctorate program, was launched in 1975 and continues to be one of the university’s most distinguished academic programs. Earlier, as chair of the Department of Education at John Carroll University in Ohio, he founded one of the first programs to prepare teachers to work in urban poverty areas. He and his wife, Jerene, are active in humanitarian efforts in the Seattle area.

Idaho’s first Doctor of Philosophy degrees were earned by:

Newman Fisher Newman Fisher received the university’s first doctorate in mathematics. While a student, he was a member of the American Mathematical Association of America, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, and Pi Mu Epsilon. He went on to teach mathematics at San Francisco State University, twice serving as department chair. Now retired, he and his wife, the former Neah Trivus, make their home in San Francisco.

Daniel George Specializing in organic chemistry, Daniel George was among the first graduates to earn a doctorate in chemistry at Idaho in 1963. For many years, he was a research chemist at DuPont and is now retired. He lives in Chad Fords, Pennsylvania with his wife, Sachiko, who is an artist.

Bruce Gesner Bruce Gesner also belonged to Idaho’s inaugural class of chemistry doctoral recipients. He specialized in organic chemistry and authored the book, “The Mechanisms of Carbene Eliminations.” Now, he is a retired executive director for technology introduction and support at SBC Communication. His spouse, Phyllis, is a retired attorney and Chief Operating Officer of The National Judicial College. They reside in Reno, Nevada.

Richard Hermens Richard Hermens is an emeritus professor at Eastern Oregon University. Beginning in 1966, he taught physical, analytical, inorganic and general chemistry. A 50-year member of the American Chemical Society (ACS), Hermens was instrumental in organizing the Eastern Oregon Science Journal, which opened the door for students in science and mathematical fields to publish their research. Hermens co-founded MicroLab, based in Bozeman, Montana. MicroLab manufactures chemistry equipment for student and classroom use. He also co-owns a publishing company that publishes history books of the La Grande, Oregon area. His spouse, Maxine, is retired from Eastern Oregon University where she worked in student records.

Dean “Doc” Metter Dean “Doc” Metter was the first person at the University of Idaho to receive a doctorate in zoology. After earning his degree, he joined the biology faculty at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he taught zoology, comparative anatomy, evolution and herpetology, the study of amphibians and reptiles. A believer in putting knowledge to the test in the field, Metter was a co-founder of the Bobby Witcher Society and helped create a scholarship named after the colorful herpetologist renowned for his carefree handling of venomous snakes. After Metter’s death in 2001, the society renamed the scholarship the Dean E. Metter Memorial Award. In honor of his work, he has a subspecies of reptile named after him.

Significance

of

A c a d e m i c A p pa 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 a v e I d a ho ” 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.
