Gov. Snyder to deliver Michigan State University commencement speech

Steve Carmody/Michigan Radio

Governor Rick Snyder will deliver the commencement address at Michigan State University’s December graduation this morning.    

Some 23 hundred undergraduates and graduate students will receive their degrees during the mid-morning ceremony at the Breslin Center.

Thousands of family members and friends are expected to attend.   And maybe a few protesters as well.

Several groups unhappy with Governor Snyder’s quick signing this week of Right to Work legislation have talked about showing up at the M-S-U commencement which is open to the public.

MSU spokespeople say there will be security at the commencement similar to the level of a Spartan basketball game.
