Tulane announces local graduate
Placeholder Image

Tulane University awarded degrees to nearly 2,800 graduates on May 20 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.  Jamie Spellerberg of Richmond Hill earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Tulane's School of Liberal Arts.  The ceremony's keynote speaker was Helen Mirren, an Oscar, Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress known for her support of humanitarian efforts.

Spellerberg and fellow class members were honored at the ceremony, which included all the pomp and circumstance of a traditional commencement but with a New Orleans twist, including herald trumpets, and a second-line jazz procession.
