On Topic, Off Topic: Martha Squared

On Topic: Martha Raddatz – Whether you’ve heard already or not, Senior Class Council announced last night that Martha Raddatz will be this year’s Commencement speaker. Raddatz is currently the Chief Global Affairs Correspondent for ABC News and has covered foreign affairs for over 20 years. In the 2012 Presidential Election, she moderated the debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. Other fun facts: she spoke to a packed Rosse Hall in 2012 (which I could link to if the Collegian’s website kept archives) and also is a Kenyon Parent.

Off Topic: Martha Stewart – In what we assumed was a miscommunication, some of the Thrill staff thought this year’s commencement speaker to be Martha Stewart. Though we have since learned that the miscommunication was instead a joke, it still leads us to wonder, what if Martha Stewart was the Commencement speaker? In a quick Google search, I have learned that Stewart is not a fan of Gwenyth Paltrow, which definitely conflicts with our interests here at the Thrill. Just some food for thought.

    If you need ideas, I’m sure Gracie or Maureen have some extras lying around.
