The BAC honored respected community members with the presentation of Honorary Degrees : Carole Wedge Doctor of Community Service Carole epitomizes the educational values of the BAC. After graduat- ing from college, she wanted to study within a professional design college. Arriving at the BAC in , she went to work in the mailroom at Shepley Bul nch, one of America's oldest and most respected architecture rms. Working her way up the Shepley Bul nch ranks, she was elected president of the rm in , and has assumed national leadership roles around how design rms can better serve the public and protect the environment. rough this period she has both signi cantly diversi ed the rm, and raised a family of young daughters. She is the model of a new form of professional leadership in the design world inspiring and informing a future that we will wish to inhabit and the BAC is extremely proud of her accomplish- ments, and of her on-going commitment to contributing back to design education what she has gained from a commitment to life-long learning. Richard Fitzgerald Doctor of Humane Letters Richard is the heart and soul of the Boston Society of Architects. His subtle, deft hand has led the organization to become the largest and most respected American Institute of Architects local component in the United States. He has been the national leader within the AIA speaking on behalf of how the profession can better ser ve the public, how ethics are integral to professional responsibil- ity, how diversity enhances professional practice and credibility, how clients matter, and how design can better address public issues from sustainability and providing a ordable housing, to saving Modernist icons like the Boston City Hall. He is a big man with a very light touch who is thought- ful, incisive, whimsical, a great educator, a promoter of those around him, and extraordinarily powerful in shaping the design professions from coast to coast.
