Grove City College has announced who will be its commencement speaker this spring- U.S. Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska.
The junior Republican senator was elected in 2014 and is a close friend of Grove City College President Paul McNulty.
“Ben Sasse is a unique voice in Washington. His remarkable intellect, extraordinary communications skills, refreshing independence and, most importantly, deeply-rooted convictions and exemplary moral character make him an ideal person to inspire and challenge our graduating class,” said Grove City College President Paul J. McNulty. “I’ve had the privilege of being his friend for more than 20 years, and I’m extremely grateful for his willingness to serve our country at this important time in history.”
Grove City College has had several notable commencement speakers in years past. This year’s address- which is the school’s 139th– will be delivered on May 19.
