Sherrod Brown is your Autumn 2019 Commencement Speaker

Attention, graduating Buckeyes! Ohio senator Sherrod Brown has been announced as your commencement speaker for the upcoming Dec. 15 graduation ceremony.

Brown has been an Ohio politician since 1975 (when he was only 22 years old!) and earned two master’s degrees from Ohio State in 1979 and 1981.

In a press release, Ohio State president Michael V. Drake had this to say about Brown:

“An engaged leader and proud Ohio State alumnus, Senator Brown lends his broad expertise to some of our nation’s most significant policy discussions. His passion for public service will inspire our graduates as they consider their own impact as global citizens.”

Brown follows up Rattan Lal who addressed the Summer graduating class and Fareed Zakaria who spoke last spring.
