BATON ROUGE- Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Brittain will deliver the keynote address at LSU's summer commencement ceremony in August.
Brittain, a graduate of LSU and Washington Post investigative reporter, will address graduates at 9 a.m. Friday, Aug. 5, in the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
Brittain, a Shreveport native, was part of the newspaper's staff that recently was recognized with a Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism. LSU President F. King Alexander says her success in her field demonstrates what an LSU degree can do for students.
