Not One, but TWO Commencement Speakers

Hiram College today announced that U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown, (D-Ohio) and his wife, Pulitzer Prize winning columnist, Connie Schultz, will both be the speakers for Hiram's commencement exercises May 12, 2012.

"We wanted to do something unusual, and something that had resonance for our graduates whether they are from Ohio or beyond," said Thomas V. Chema, President of Hiram. "We want this to be a sort of non-political, non-partisan 'tag team' event that emphasizes the ideals of public service and social justice we hold dear at Hiram."

Chema said he had asked the husband and wife to avoid partisan politics in their presentation, and that they agreed to focus instead on the essence of college graduation, service to community, and the graduates' entry into the world.
