My professor emailed my class to wish us luck for the upcoming chemistry exam. He said, “Study so hard that you make it impossible for me to give out any grade less than an A.” That is exactly what I intend to do.
Kerry Washington Named 2013 Commencement Speaker of her Alma Mater The award-winning actor, activist and alumna will address George Washington University graduates and guests on the National Mall May 19.
Ms. Washington, B.A. ’98, who graduated from the university magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa and previously served as a Board of Trustees member, will also receive an honorary degree.
“I am delighted that Ms. Washington has agreed to give the Commencement address,” said George Washington President Steven Knapp, noting that she is emblematic of GW’s commitment to the arts. “She has captured the imagination of our students, and they will benefit greatly, as they head out into the world, from hearing her perspective both as an alumna and as a highly successful actor on stage, in film and on television.”
