Commencement Speaker
Read the speech by Lesley Stahl

Lesley Stahl, an award-winning correspondent for CBS News' 60 Minutes and author of Reporting Live, will deliver the keynote address at Colgate University's 187th commencement exercises on Sunday, May 18.

During the ceremony, Colgate will award Stahl an honorary degree.

One of the country's most respected journalists, Stahl has been a correspondent on 60 Minutes since 1991. She also served in CBS News' Washington bureau and reported on Watergate, the Gulf War, and every political convention and election night since 1974.

Stahl has received several Emmy Awards for her work at CBS News along with an Edward R. Murrow Award for Overall Excellence in Television. She's a cum laude graduate of Wheaton College and currently serves on the college's board as well as that of the New York City Ballet.

"The global reach of Ms. Stahl's work is particularly exciting for seniors because there's a lot of interest in international affairs at Colgate," said Taylor Buonocore '08, senior class president. "There's a lot of experience and perspective behind the message she'll give during commencement."
