Pybus to speak at OSU commencement

Ponca City Now - December 11, 2014 7:18 am

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Vice Admiral Sean A. Pybus, deputy commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command in Florida, will be the featured speaker for undergraduate commencement ceremonies at Oklahoma State University.

OSU will host commencement ceremonies on Friday and Saturday in Stillwater. Nearly 1,700 students will complete their graduate and undergraduate degrees at OSU this fall.

Pybus graduated from high school in Stillwater and is now the highest ranking senior Navy SEAL in the country. OSU president Burns Hargis says Pybus grew up in a home that repeatedly hosted international students from OSU and he credits that for teaching him the importance of global engagement and cultural appreciation early in life.

Pybus and former OSU Regent Dean Stringer will receive honorary doctorates prior to the commencement ceremonies on Saturday.
