146th Annual PSR Commencement

May 26, 2013 at 4:00pm

PSR Commencement will be on Sunday, May 26 at 4:00 p.m at First Congregational Church in Berkeley. PSR is pleased to announce that former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm will be the PSR commencement speaker this year. Gov. Granholm "became a household name" after delivering an energetic and inspiring speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, on September 6.

Jennifer M. Granholm was elected governor of Michigan 2002. In 2006, she was re-elected with the largest number of votes ever cast for governor in Michigan. As Governor, Granholm led the state through a brutal economic downturn that resulted from a meltdown in the automotive and manufacturing sectors. She worked relentlessly to diversify the state’s economy, strengthen its auto industry, preserve the advanced manufacturing sector, and add new, emerging sectors, such as clean energy, to Michigan’s economic portfolio.
