Reflecting on Rainbow Awards & Graduation
- By Dorothea V. Brauer
Rainbow Awards & Graduation are right around the corner. A perfect time for a trip down memory lane. We here at the LGBTQA Center invite you to reflect back on remarks made by Bill Meezan, class of 1967, speaking at the 2012 ceremony. After UVM Bill earned several advanced degrees and holds a doctorate in Social Work. His distinguished career included the honor of holding three separate endowed professorships and serving as Dean of one of the largest colleges of social work at the Ohio State University. Bill was honored by UVM with an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters at the 2013 commencement. He and his partner Michael Brittenback have made a provision in their will to endow a Meezan/Brittenback Fund for the UVM LGBTQA Center. Bill serves as a member of the UVM Foundation Council.
