We are excited to announce this year’s commencement speaker for the Class of 2019 is Kew-Forest Alum, Gideon Yago ’96. We look forward to hearing Mr. Yago speak to our graduates on Sunday, June 9th.  Thank you for joining us.
Gideon Yago '96 is a writer and former correspondent for MTV and CBS News who began his reporting career during the 2000 presidential election. His documentaries on sexual health, the 9/11 attacks, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, hate crimes and US politics have garnered him a 2004 Emmy, a 2002 Peabody and a 2005 Edward R. Murrow Award. He has written episodes of television for HBO, Netflix, ABC and WGN America and features for Warner Bros. and Sony - all of which pale in comparison to his greatest cultural contribution, Editor-In-Chief of the 1996 Kew-Forest Blotter!
