Graduations On Tap For Weekend

Another wave of students is set to graduate from area colleges and universities this weekend. Commencement ceremonies will be held at North Carolina Central, Duke, and NC State. 

Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis will give the commencement address at NC Central on Saturday. Across town and a day later, Duke will hold its graduation. Cisco CEO John Chambers will speak to the Duke graduates.

Earlier this week, Cisco announced it will cut its operations by $1 billion and likely layoff thousands of employees. Duke will also award an honorary degree to former Governor Jim Hunt. Another business leader will speak to NC State graduates on Saturday. Jim Rogers, the CEO at Duke Energy, is scheduled to give the commencement address in Raleigh.
