Graduation Speaker, Again
Laura Meagher was one of the two graduation speakers chosen by her classmates at the Western Albemarle High School’s graduation ceremony in June 2007. This year she was the student speaker at Tulane University’s graduation commencement in the Superdome May 19. Chosen by a faculty committee from among 40 honors nominees, Meagher addressed a crowd of 17,000. On the podium with her was Lisa Jackson, the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Meagher graduated Cum Laude with a double major in Latin American Studies and Spanish. She was selected to participate in Professor James Carville’s Presidential Election 2012 Project, where she argued the case for the Affordable Care Act before Federal Judge Martin Feldman of the Eastern District of Louisiana.
Now employed by Tulane as a university admissions counselor in the mid Atlantic region, Meagher plans to pursue an MBA or a Masters of Public Policy.
