Jill Abramson confirmed to deliver Commencement address

Jill Abramson, former Executive Editor of the New York Times, has confirmed that she will deliver the Commencement address at Wake Forest University on Monday, May 19.

A Commencement Speaker Advisory Committee comprised of students, faculty, staff and administrators provided input on the speaker selection process. On Thursday, Wake Forest President Nathan Hatch re-affirmed the University’s invitation to her.

“I cannot think of a better message for the Class of 2014 than that of resilience,” said President Nathan Hatch. “Jill Abramson’s accomplishments speak for themselves, and I am confident she will have an inspiring and timely message for our graduates.”
