Edward E. Whitacre Jr., the widely admired AT&T chief executive who came out of retirement to lead the turnaround of General Motors Co., was the featured speaker at the University's Commencement Ceremony.

The son and grandson of railroad workers, neither of whom had the opportunity to complete high school, Whitacre earned an engineering degree from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, in 1964. Here Whitacre received an honorary doctorate from University of the Pacific.
