Patrick Fitzgerald will deliver Knox College commencement address

From the Peoria Journal Star:

Knox College will again have a commencement speaker pulled straight from the headlines.

Patrick J. Fitzgerald, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, will deliver the Commencement address on June 6.

“United States Attorney Fitzgerald’s leadership in combating crime is exemplary,” explains Roger Taylor, Knox College president. “Once again, Knox students have chosen a national figure to address their class at commencement.”

The Class of 2009 knows Fitzgerald for his role in nationally significant investigations into terrorism financing, public corruption, corporate fraud, and violent crime.
