Nancy Pelosi To Speak At Morgan State Commencement

April 21st, 2016 by WCBC Radio

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi will speak at Morgan State University's spring commencement, university President David Wilson announced Thursday.

Pelosi, whose House district includes San Francisco, is a Baltimore native, the daughter of former mayor and congressman Thomas D'Alesandro, Jr. and sister of former mayor Thomas D'Alesandro III.

“I am very pleased to announce that Leader Pelosi will be this spring’s commencement speaker,” said Dr. Wilson. “She is a Baltimore native so she knows Morgan. And in many respects, this will serve as a homecoming for her, after spending 28 years representing her constituents in San Francisco, Calif. I am sure that this will be a sharing moment for Leader Pelosi and our graduating students.”

Pelosi was the first woman to serve as speaker of the House, a post she held from 2007 to 2011.
