Commencement guest speaker to be determined

The commencement speaker for the spring 2014 ceremony has not been determined yet, according to student services vice president Earic Peters.

Peters said several people had been invited to speak at the ceremony and a few have declined due to scheduling conflicts.

“We were looking for speakers for this year and next,” Peters said.

Peters indicated a speaker would be chosen, to be confirmed by Thursday, May 15, 2014.

Of the nine colleges in the Los Angeles Community College District, only six colleges have confirmed commencement speakers.

Last year, the featured keynote speaker was Zev Yaroslavsky, Los Angeles County supervisor.

Other keynote speakers for district campuses include the Honorable Kevin de Leon, a senator for the 22nd district, Ana Guerrero, chief of staff to mayor Eric Garcetti, The Honorable Mike Feuer, Los Angeles city attorney, The Honorable Toney Cardenas, congressman for the 29th district, Noel Massie, president of the United Parcel Service, Southern California District, and the Honorable Holly J. Mitchell, senator for the 26th district.

Pierce College’s 66th commencement ceremony will take place at Rocky Young Park on Tues, June 10 at 6 p.m.
