General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will address students at the Boston College High School’s 153rd commencement on May 22.
Gen. Dunford is the nation’s highest-ranking military officer, and the principal military advisor to the President, Secretary of Defense, and National Security Council. A Quincy native, he graduated from BC High in 1973.
“General Dunford talks about how he lives up to the obligations and the values instilled in him during his time at BC High,” said Bill Kemeza, president of BC High. “We are proud that he is a BC High graduate and honored that General Dunford will be speaking at commencement. He is an inspiration to so many, including graduating students from the class of 2016 who have chosen to attend military schools with the goal of serving our Country upon graduation from college.”
