WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is giving a send-off message to graduates at Colby College.

The commencement speaker, a Chicago native, attended Milton Academy in Massachusetts through A Better Chance, a Boston-based organization. He graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School.

About 475 students are receiving their degrees at Colby’s 193rd Commencement on Sunday, which will be the last for President William Adams, who’s retiring in June.

Other recipients of honorary degrees include Richard Blanco, the poet who participated in President Barack Obama’s second inauguration; Elizabeth Broun from the Smithsonian American Art Museum; William Chace, former president of Wesleyan and Emory universities and Andrea Nix Fine, an Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker.
