Fox News reporter and Liberty University alumna Shannon Bream (’93) will be the keynote speaker for Liberty’s 40th Commencement ceremony on May 11. She is both the first female and the first graduate since Liberty became an accredited university in 1980 to be the marquee speaker at Commencement.

Bream will share the platform with Evangelical apologist Ravi Zacharias who will deliver a brief charge to the Commencement crowd as well. Zacharias will be the featured speaker at Liberty’s Baccalaureate service May 10.

“The fact that Liberty University is now able to welcome one of its own alumni as its keynote speaker at Commencement is a clear indication that the university is coming of age and fulfilling its mission of Training Champions for Christ,” said Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. “We are proud of Shannon Bream, and it is our privilege to welcome her home and honor her achievements.”

Bream visited Liberty in 2009, speaking in Convocation and at Liberty University School of Law. She has been featured in the Liberty Journal.

Commencement begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 11 inside Williams Stadium and Baccalaureate will take place in the Vines Center Friday, May 10 at 6 p.m.
