U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici will address graduates and guests at the 2012 Clatsop Community College commencement ceremony at 7 p.m., Friday, June 15, in the Liberty Theater. A large graduating class is anticipated, and seating is limited.

“Clatsop Community College is honored to have Congresswoman Bonamici as our 2012 commencement speaker. A community college graduate herself, Congresswoman Bonamici understands the important role that community colleges play in our communities, state and nation,” said CCC President Larry Galizio.

Bonamici was elected in January 2012 and serves Oregon’s First Congressional District, which comprises the northwest portion of the state. She currently serves on the Hoouse Budget Committee and the Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Prior to her election to the U.S. House, she served in the Oregon House of Representatives for District 34 and in the Oregon Senate representing District 17.

“It is an honor to speak at Clatsop Community College’s commencement ceremony,” Bonamici said. “My community college education gave me the foundation I needed to excel in my further educational pursuits and in my career. I look forward to wishing this year’s graduates the best in their upcoming endeavors.”
