Spring 2008 Commencement Speakers

With only a week left of classes, many seniors have been wondering about who their commencement speaker will be. The process recently came under fire when Suchita Shah wrote an op-ed lambasting the process for choosing a speaker. The CB also gave his input.

The two speakers were announced today. Shirley Abrahamson, WI Supreme Court Chief Justice, will speak at the 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. ceremonies on Saturday, May 17th.

Kay Koplovitz, CEO of Koplovitz & Co., will speak at both ceremonies on the 18th. She was the founder of the USA networks and is the first woman to serve as president of a TV network.

The WI Lounge has caught wind that these people were near the bottom of a 20-person list… stay tuned, maybe it will get posted
