Utilities commissioner to speak at SEMO graduation
Jeff Davis of the Missouri Public Service Commission will deliver the commencement address on Dec. 18 at Southeast Missouri State University.
The university expects to graduate 728 students at the winter commencement ceremony at 2 p.m. at the Show Me Center.
Participating in the ceremony will be 594 undergraduate students and 134 graduate students, school officials said.
Davis, a 1994 graduate of Southeast, is currently the youngest public service commissioner in the nation. He began his current job in April. The Missouri Public Service Commission regulates utilities in the state.
Davis previously served as general counsel and chief of staff to Senate President Pro Tem Peter Kinder.
In addition to commencement, an honors convocation is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the Show Me Center. That event will honor 108 undergraduates and 63 graduate students, school officials said.
