Pittsburgh Foundation CEO Maxwell King will be the spring commencement speaker at Saint Vincent College.

The school's 172nd annual commencement will be held 11 a.m. May 12 in the Robert S. Carey Student Center, conferring an estimated 330 undergraduate and graduate degrees.

King, former executive director of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children's Media at Saint Vincent, will receive an honorary doctor of humane letters degree.

He is working on a biography of Fred Rogers.

The Pittsburgh Foundation is Western Pennsylvania's third-largest grant-making foundation.

Sister of St. Francis Katarina Schuth will deliver the commencement address at Saint Vincent Seminary at 5 p.m. May 11.

The vespers and commencement will be held in the Archabbey Basilica, where five people will receive master of divinity degrees and four will receive master of arts degrees.

The master of divinity is necessary for priestly ordination, although the seminary also has a non-ordination program.

Schuth, professor emerita at the Saint Paul Seminary School of Divinity, University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn., also will receive an honorary degree.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
