Pierre Biencourt from Bainbridge Island graduated from Lehigh University on May 20, 2013 during the 145th Spring Commencement ceremonies at Goodman Stadium in Bethlehem, Pa.

Biencourt earned a bachelor of science degree in computer science. University officials said Biencourt graduated with the university’s highest honors.

More than 1,800 Lehigh University students were awarded bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees during Spring Commencement.

Bill Nye, executive director of The Planetary Society, the world’s largest space interest organization, and host of three television series, including “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” delivered the address. He challenged the Class of 2013 to nurture the “joy of discovery” and bring their talents, insights and education to bear in solving the world’s most complex problems.
