FAMU lands Bill Clinton as graduation speaker



Former President Bill Clinton is one of three headline speakers for Florida A&M's commencement ceremonies May 3.

Clinton, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek, D-Miami, and CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien will each address one of three graduation sessions.

A FAMU release said Clinton "will share his life lessons with graduates and challenge them to 'transform ideas into action.' " He is to address the 9 a.m. graduation, which includes the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Law, the School of Architecture and the Environmental Sciences Institute. 
FAMU alum Meek gets the 2 p.m. slot, and O'Brien addresses graduates at 6 p.m. that Sunday.
