Just a quick note to 3Ls from your 3L reps, Nick Fahey and Matt Roby…
As 3L representatives, we are primarily responsible for making speaker arrangements for graduation, as well as coordinating the choice of a class gift and fundraising for that gift. As arranging a commencement speaker is the most time-sensitive of our tasks, that’s where we have focused our initial efforts.
As you all should have seen, we sent out an email prior to Fall Break soliciting suggestions for commencement speakers. After collecting your recommendations, we sat down with Dean Brabbit to narrow the list to the 10 most feasible candidates. That list will be sent out shortly with instructions for voting.
Once the voting period is over, we’ll start with the top vote getter and go down the list until we get a commitment. Ideally, our first choice will be available. A short bio of every candidate is included with the list, but don’t hesitate to do more research about the candidates.
Finally, in the forthcoming email, we will be soliciting suggestions for a class gift and will likely have a similar voting process in the coming weeks to make a selection.
Our goal this year has been to make sure everyone in the class has at least an opportunity to provide input and suggestions for our graduation. This is especially important this year as ours will be the first graduation ceremony not held in the atrium (our graduation will be held at Orchestra Hall).
If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions feel free to contact us. Have a great week!
