GRADUATION SPEAKER

Do you know someone with great speaking skills and an interest in public affairs? Do you have a former classmate, someone from a prior work/internship experience, or a childhood friend that has an interesting story about public service or an important message to share with La Follette students? If so, nominate them to be the 2011 La Follette Graduation Speaker. Last year, CBS political correspondent and UW-Madison alum, Jeff Greenfield, spoke to the graduating class. Now, the new LSSA board is seeking suggestions for next year’s speaker. Please email Sara Kock (skock@wisc.edu) a short bio and a 1-2 sentences explaining how you know this person by August 20th.
