The President, Trustees, and Faculty of Emory University take pleasure in honoring George J. Mitchell, Senator, Statesman, Peace-maker: Your integrity, undaunted hope and ability to discern a path into a better future, where others had seen only rancor and despair, have made you a lion in the halls of Congress, a hero to millions whose hopes hang on the fate of Ireland, and a human being worthy of emulation by all who have heard you this day. With the prophet Isaiah, we proclaim "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news of peace." With deepest respect and admiration, we confer on you the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa. Framed certificate of the award of Doctor of Laws honoris causa, with Emory Report newspaper and Commencement program.
