Bryant keynote speaker at MSU commencement

December 13, 2012


Mississippi’s chief executive will be the keynote speaker for Mississippi State University’s fall 2012 graduating class at Saturday’s commencement exercises.

Phil Bryant, the state’s 64th governor, will make his first graduation speech since he assumed office in January.
There are more than 2,100 degree candidates combined from the summer and fall terms.

Bryant was elected in 1990 as a member of the Mississippi House of Representatives — a post he held for five years before his appointment to State Auditor in 1996 by then-Governor Kirk Fordice. He was twice re-elected to that same post twice before he was elected Lieutenant Governor in 2007.

Bryant’s communications director, Mick Bullock, said Bryant is looking forward to addressing the new graduates.

“This is the first commencement address he will deliver as governor, and you can expect him to cover a variety of topics, including the importance of education, while leaving the graduates with words of encouragement for the road ahead,” Bullock said.

The ceremony is set to begin at 10 a.m. in Humphrey Coliseum.
