CLINTON, NY — Joshua Horowitz of Fallbrook received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hamilton College Sunday, May 21, in a commencement ceremony concluding the college's 211th year.

Retired Navy Adm. Michelle J. Howard, the first female four-star admiral and chair of the 2020-22 Congressional Naming Commission, was awarded an honorary degree and delivered the Commencement address. In her remarks, Howard shared anecdotes from her time before and after active duty, all tied to this life lesson: the call to the common good is for all of us. "As your namesake [Alexander Hamilton] would say, the first duty is justice," she told the Class of 2023.
