Duke Honors Martin Eakes

Duke University has announced it will confer four honorary degrees at its May 12 commencement. Included in those four is my uncle, Martin Eakes.

Adding Duke's honorary degree to traditional diplomas from Davidson, Princeton, and Yale makes for a pretty nice collection. Nicer yet are his combination of impressive achievements and genuine humility.
