Joining the 419 members of the Class of 2010 in being recognized during Wittenberg’s 165th Commencement Exercises were international AIDS activist and keynote speaker Zackie Achmat; Professor Emeritus of English and General Secretary Emeritus of the University Richard Veler ’58; and Ho Pak Kong ’50, founder of the Hong Kong-based Lotus International Ltd. Achmat and Kong both received an honorary doctor of humane letters, while Veler was presented with the Wittenberg Medal of Honor (top center photo). Kong’s daughter, Vanessa Kong Kerzner, accepted the degree on her father’s behalf.
