"As an alumna, parent, and Trustee, I am honored to be invited to be this year's Commencement speaker at the Academy,” said Rudnay. “The academic foundation and intellectual training provided at Notre Dame prepares graduates for a vast array of college majors and careers. The future is wide open for the Class of 2019!"
