Award-winning actress Lisa Kudrow, a graduate of the Vassar College class of 1985 and a member of the college’s Board of Trustees since 2004, delivered the address during the 146th Vassar College commencement exercises on Sunday, May 23, 2010.
“Lisa is a natural choice and I'm thrilled she has agreed to be the speaker,” noted Vassar College president Catharine Hill. “She brings the excitement of an Emmy Award-winning actor along with her other work in the entertainment industry, in addition to her dedication and commitment to Vassar through serving on the Board of Trustees and otherwise supporting the college.” President Hill concluded, “Lisa's got a great sense of humor and believes in Vassar and its mission. She'll do a wonderful job.”
Kudrow graduated from Vassar with a biology degree and has maintained a variety of ties to the college in addition to serving on its Board. She recently provided narration for a new work premiered during a Vassar College Orchestra concert last fall. Kudrow also may be seen in a cameo appearance in Vassar's recent online webisode Fourth Floor Main, a comedy series about college dorm life featuring Vassar students.
