James Franklin To Deliver Penn State Harrisburg Commencement Address
James Franklin is known to be one with words. That should make it no surprise that Penn State’s head football coach will make a special appearance at Penn State Harrisburg on May 6 to deliver the school’s commencement address. The commencement marks the school’s 50th anniversary, where it will hand out nearly 700 undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Franklin is no stranger to commencement addresses. In 2014, he spoke at East Stroudsburg’s commencement; Franklin graduated from East Stroudsburg in 1994. He was a quarterback who then embarked on a coaching career that’s led him to Happy Valley. Franklin was inducted to the East Stroudsburg Hall of Fame in 2016.
The commencement will take place at 9:30 a.m. at the Hershey Giant Center in Hershey, Pa.
