Allen Counter, director of the Harvard Foundation, in a statement. “She has also created the Clara Lionel Foundation Scholarship Program (named for her grandmother and grandfather) for students attending college in the US from Caribbean countries, and supports the Global Partnership for Education and Global Citizen Project, a multi-year campaign which will provide children with access to education in over 60 developing countries, giving priority to girls, and those affected by lack of access to education in the world today.”

  1. When she dresses simple and classy, she really is stunning. Don’t get me wrong, she is a pretty girl no matter how ridiculous she looks sometime, but she should stick with the simple and classy.

  2. It was a great ceremony that I was privileged to attend. Peter Gomes, the late, Black, gay Minister of the Memorial Church at Harvard and Plummer Professor of Christian Morals, would have loved it.

Play nice, stay on topic, and for the love of God: NO SPAM IN THE FOXHOLE!
