May 20 will mark Moberly Area Community College’s 82nd commencement ceremony, and the school has selected Greg Walker, a member of the college’s Board of Trustees since 1984, as its keynote speaker.
There are 658 students applicants for graduation, and about 300 are expected to walk, said Jaime Morgans, MACC director of PR.
Walker says his speech will focus on planning to meet the challenges of the world after graduation.
A graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism, Walker is currently on the Board of the Missouri Community College Association and will start a term as chairman this November. He owns financial services company Vantage Capital Resources and was awarded the Glynn E. Clark Distinguished Service Award in 2006 for his leadership in the MCAA membership campaign in 2005-2006.
The ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. at the Fitzsimmons-John Arena.
