Stephen Colbert, the host, co-writer and executive producer of Comedy Central’s Emmy and Peabody Award-winning series “The Colbert Report,” will be the keynote speaker at the University of Virginia’s 2013 Valedictory Exercises, the Class of 2013 Trustees have announced.
Part of the Finals Weekend festivities, Valediction is the ceremony at which the Class of 2013 will pay tribute to their time at the University and present the class gift and University awards. It will be held May 18 at 11 a.m. on the Lawn.
“The Graduation Committee and the Class Trustees are thrilled to have Stephen Colbert as our speaker,” said Priya Vithani, Class of 2013 graduation committee chair. “We are confident that his presence at Valediction will provide lasting memories, and many laughs, for the graduates and their families and friends.”
Colbert’s wife, Evelyn McGee Colbert, is a 1985 alumna of the College of Arts & Sciences. She double-majored in drama and English and participated in several summer productions of the Heritage Repertory Theatre, now the Heritage Theatre Festival.
In 2011, the Colberts made a generous gift to create a new Arts Scholars program in the College. Arts Scholars have direct access to the best resources in the arts at the University, a senior faculty member as their adviser-mentor, and funding for arts-intensive summer work. Sixteen students benefited from the program in its inaugural year in 2011, and 13 students who entered this fall were selected to be Arts Scholars in studio art, music, drama and dance.
