Cherie honored at Western University Convocation
Earlier this month, AUW Chancellor Cherie Blair spoke to the graduates at the University of Western Ontario's 301st Convocation. Cherie, who received an honorary Doctorate of Laws from Western University at the ceremony, was introduced by Western's President, Dr Amit Chakma (who is also the Acting Chairman of AUW's Board of Trustees). In her speech, she spoke of the importance of education in her own life and the powerful experience of addressing AUW's own graduates just one month ago. Mrs. Blair also invited the Western University graduates to become involved with AUW in the future as faculty members, teaching fellows, and internship hosts, encouraging them to play their part in building a better world.
