Kerry Washington will return to her alma mater this spring to address graduates at the George Washington University’s Commencement ceremony on the National Mall May 19.

Ms. Washington, B.A. ’98, who graduated from the university magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa and previously served as a Board of Trustees member, will also receive an honorary degree.

Ms. Washington—who was a resident assistant in Thurston during her junior year—is also an activist. She was appointed by President Barack Obama to the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities and adopted Savoy Elementary School in Anacostia under the committee’s Turnaround Arts Initiative. She is also a member of the V-Counsel, a group of advisers to V-Day, the global movement to end violence against women and girls.
