Gov. Nathan Deal will deliver the keynote address at Paine College’s commencement ceremony in May.
“For the first time in history, a sitting governor will give the address to the graduating class,” said George Bradley, Paine’s president.
Bradley said he believes Deal’s commitment to supporting higher education and his example as a leader will motivate the graduates and inspire faulty and staff members, undergraduates and the public.
The commencement convocation will be at 9 a.m. Sunday, May 12, in the Health Education Activiites Learning Complex, 1255 Druid Park Ave.
