ANN ARBOR (WWJ/AP) – CNN medical correspondent and University of Michigan graduate Sanjay Gupta is scheduled to deliver the spring commencement speech at the school.

The Ann Arbor school says in an article posted on its website that Gupta will deliver the April 28 address at Michigan Stadium, where the Wolverines play football.

Plans for the commencement speaker were reported Monday by The Michigan Daily. Gupta also is expected to receive a Doctorate of Humane Letters at the ceremony.

University President Mary Sue Coleman told the newspaper that Gupta serves as an influential example of what university graduates can aspire to become.

Governor Rick Snyder drew some students protest when he delivered last year’s spring commencement address.

    Times must be tough to lasso cerebral celebrities for University, Inc. signoff orations. Most of these kids will probably need a financial advisor (Quicken Loans) to commence their journey on repaying a BS mortgage. I came out of U of M in 1972 and I can’t remember who induced the snores then. But then I only paid $1100 tuition for 2 terms out of a tri-semester. For what American kids pay for college they should get a Beijing Olympic performance troupe
