George Mitchell ’54, H’83, the former Senate majority leader who helped broker peace in Northern Ireland, will lead the March 17, 2016, St. Patrick’s Day Parade in New York City. Mitchell said he accepted the honor after being assured that the conflict between the parade organizers’ and gay and lesbian groups had been resolved.

“I’m in good shape,” he told the New York Times. “I play tennis, and I live in New York, so I walk a lot. I’ll have my running shoes on.”
