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.
â€œUnited States Attorney Fitzgeraldâ€™s leadership in combating crime is exemplary,â€ explains Roger Taylor, Knox College president. â€œOnce again, Knox students have chosen a national figure to address their class at commencement.â€
The Class of 2009 knows Fitzgerald for his role in nationally significant investigations into terrorism financing, public corruption, corporate fraud, and violent crime.
