Correction: Keene State-Commencement story

May 6, 2018

KEENE, N.H. (AP) — In a story May 5 about Nora Guthrie addressing Keene State College graduates, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Nora Guthrie is the daughter of folk artist Arlo Guthrie. She is the daughter of folk artist of Woody Guthrie, not Arlo Guthrie.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Daughter of Woody Guthrie advises Keene State graduates

The daughter of folk artist Woody Guthrie told Keene State College graduates to be themselves as they get pulled in many different directions

KEENE, N.H. (AP) — The daughter of folk artist Woody Guthrie told Keene State College graduates to remain true to themselves as they get pulled in many different directions.

Nora Guthrie was presented an honorary doctor of humane letters degree Saturday for her contributions to preserving her father’s legacy and fostering an appreciation of folk music. She told graduates they are newborn adults who are being born into a world that will ask much of them but will bring great beauty and joy.

The college conferred 926 undergraduate degrees to 908 graduates, in addition to 32 graduate degrees.
