Gwinnett Daily Post- More than 300 students who have earned degrees from Georgia Gwinnett College will hear words of advice and encouragement from U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall later this month.
The school announced on Wednesday that Woodall would give the keynote address at the fall commencement ceremony, which is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Dec. 18 at the Arena at Gwinnett Center.
At recent graduation ceremonies, keynote speakers at GGC have included Chancellor Hank Huckaby, 11Alive news anchor Karyn Greer, GGC alumnus Homero González, Lawrenceville Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson and Ambassador Andrew Young.
Woodall was first elected in 2010, and in November was re-elected for another term.
He serves the 7th Congressional District in Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives and serves on the House Committee on Rules, the House Budget Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. He also serves as Chairman of the Republican Study Committee’s Budget and Spending Task Force.
“We are pleased and honored to have Congressman Woodall address our fall graduating class,” GGC President Stas Preczewski said in a press release. “Congressman Woodall has been a great supporter of and friend to GGC and our students. His life experiences and service in public office position him well to challenge and inspire Georgia Gwinnett College graduates as they collectively celebrate this important milestone.”
