*Oprah Winfrey has been chosen to deliver the commencement address at Harvard University’s 362nd graduation ceremony, to take place on May 30, 2013.
In a statement to the Harvard Gazette, Harvard president Drew Faust said that Oprah’s journey is one of the “great American success stories.” She added, “She has used her extraordinary influence and reach as a force for good in the world, with a constant focus on the importance of educational opportunity and the virtues of serving others.”
