2013 Commencement Keynote Address: The Senior Class Council is thrilled to announce that the legendary Julie Andrews will be speaking at the May 2013 commencement ceremony.  Ms. Andrews is a multiple winner of Academy Awards, Golden Globes, Grammys, SAG and BAFTA Awards, for her iconic performances.  She is the recipient of a Kennedy Center Honor and was invested as a Dame Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II in 2001.  Her career spans over 60 years and includes her enormous success as a best-selling children’s author of over 27 books.  Dame Andrews is well known for her advocacy of the arts and education and has spent much of her time off-screen devoted to her philanthropic endeavors which includes her Ambassadorship to the United Nations for UNIFEM and the creation, with her late husband, Blake Edwards of Operation USA, a highly mobilized worldwide disaster relief organization.  Ms. Andrews will provide us with her insights, advice and congratulatory remarks on the morning of May 10, 2013 at Folsom Stadium.
