Capt. Richard Phillips- Commencement SpeakerCapt. Richard Phillips to speak at spring commencement 

For several days in April 2009, Capt. Richard Phillips became the center of an international drama when he was captured by pirates who attacked and boarded his ship. 

Phillips will bring his inspirational story of perseverance and teamwork as part of the two University of Wisconsin-River Falls commencement ceremonies at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 7, in the Falcon Center’s Knowles Field House. 

Having a speaker like Phillips is in response to student requests, said Chancellor Maria Gallo. 

“He will inspire our graduates and their guests with his story of courage and leadership during a crisis and beyond,” Gallo said, adding Phillips will be motivational and connect to the university’s values.
