Grove City College will hold its 2019 spring commencement this weekend.
The ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday on campus.
This year’s commencement speaker will be 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,” McNulty said.
Sasse will receive an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree.
Grove City College has had several notable commencement speakers in years past.
Grove City’s commencement is free and open to the public. The event will also be livestreamed at www.gcc.edu/livestream .
