HBCU Selects Betsy DeVos As Commencement Speaker

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will deliver the commencement address at Bethune-Cookman University’s graduation on May 10, the school’s Office of the President confirmed Monday.

Rumors had been swirling that DeVos would address the undergraduate students.  One alum  even started a Change.org petition to stop her from speaking.

The Office of the President told theGrio.com an official statement would be sent out later Monday.

DeVos’ confirmation did not come without controversy. The vote divided the Senate in a 50-50 split and eventually required Vice President Mike Pence to cast break the tie. Since she was officially confirmed, DeVos has been met with protests and demonstrations during her national tour visiting schools.
