"It is an honor to have been elected Co-Grand Marshal. What a joy it is for me personally to have witnessed the growth of our students from fledgling law student to lawyer-in training in their time at Southwestern."

- Professor Catherine Carpenter' 76

As Grand Marshals, they will be presenting the graduates during the conferring of degrees. Both are seasoned pros in the role. Professor Carpenter was previously elected as Grand Marshal in 2015 and Professor Heilman in 2016.

- Professor John Heilman


We look forward to seeing them both at Commencement in their full regalia. Watch them present the graduating class of 2018 live here, on May 20, 2018.
