Archbishop Alexander Sample will be among those to receive an honorary doctorate May 4 during commencement at the University of Portland.  
UP will give the Christus Magister Medal, its highest honor, to Carolyn Woo, president and CEO of Catholic Relief Services.

Before joining CRS in 2012, Woo was dean and professor at the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza School of Business and a vice president and professor at Purdue University, where she earned all three of her degrees.

Also receiving honorary doctorates are John Beckman, a 1942 UP graduate who helped invent the photo-finish camera; James Popham, a 1953 alumnus who became an expert in education testing methods; Ed Ray, president of Oregon State University since 2003; and Anne Thompson, NBC News’ chief environmental affairs correspondent, who has reported on pollution, alternative fuels, global warming, land usage and new technologies. Thompson, who attended the University of Notre Dame, will deliver the commencement address.
