Interim President Constance Hungerford Introduction of Patrick Ross '15

It is now my great pleasure to introduce Patrick Ross, who was chosen by his classmates to offer his thoughts on this auspicious occasion.

A New Jersey native, Patrick graduates today with a double major in theater with Honors and in English where he focused on creative writing.

Over the last three years, Patrick proudly directed, wrote, and produced plays about the College for three freshman orientations, making sure to always adapt them and keep them true to the changing college landscape.

A skilled writer, Patrick will soon be helping high schools by creating study resource guides for students and, in addition, working at the Lang Performing Arts Center here on campus.

Having already directed and assisted in a number of plays here at Swarthmore and in Philadelphia, Patrick is eager to boost his directing skills through fellowship programs and one day hopes his love of theater, and Shakespeare in particular, translates into a future at the renowned Royal Shakespeare Company.

Please join me in welcoming Patrick Ross onto the platform and in wishing him well in all his aspirations and endeavors.
