LEWISTON — Bates College will hold its 148th commencement ceremonies Sunday, beginning at 10 a.m.

Besides conferring bachelor degrees to more than 450 seniors, the school will confer honorary degrees to author Isabel Alexis Wilkerson, computer scientist John Seely Brown, IDEXX founder David Shaw and his wife, actress Glenn Close, a six-time Academy Award nominee.

The event will be held on the school’s quad, if weather allows. In case of rain, it will move to the Merrill Indoor Gymnasium.

Though it is not open to the general public, the ceremony will be streamed live on the school’s website at bates.edu/commencement/live/.
