The SMU community celebrated the graduation of about 950 students in ceremonies Saturday, Dec. 17, with business and civic leader Carl Sewell ('66) as the featured speaker.

"SMU is your university," Sewell told the graduates and their families and friends gathered in SMU's Moody Coliseum. "You have been a part of the greatest academic growth in the history of this university. . . and it clearly is on the path to becoming a great university."
Sewell, past chair of the SMU Board of Trustees, is chairman of Sewell Automotive Companies, a national leader in the automotive industry and an innovator in establishing customer service standards. He shared his service philosophy and practices in the best-selling book Customers for Life, which has sold more than 1 million copies in 17 languages.

In introducing Sewell to the graduates, SMU President R. Gerald Turner said, "Carl Sewell is an unwavering and dedicated advocate promoting SMU's rise in academic quality and prominence. Not only does he motivate others to provide resources for scholarships, but he also has taken the lead to fund many of those scholarships. And all of you graduates here today have in some ways been touched by his vision and generosity, as he supports programs such as career services and athletics."
