Heyyyyyyyy everybody! Hope you weren’t too excited about the recent announcement. Turns out it’s hard to hear whether or not the name was John/Jon. The ‘H’ caused some troubles in that crowded, noisy room, so we apologize. But good news everyone! We have it on good authority that our commencement speaker is actually Jon Green ’14, beloved Kenyon alumnus and editor in chief of AMERICAblog.com. Not too shabby, eh. Green and Green have been mistaken for one another on numerous occasions at Kenyon, and were interviewed together in a 2014 Collegian article. I’m sure the Class of 2016 will fall for Green as they fell asleep in their first-year 8:10 classes: slowly, then all at once.*
