MARQUETTE –Tara Baker, a senior from Lakemoor, Ill., has been selected as the student speaker for Northern Michigan University’s commencement ceremony Saturday, May 7.

            Baker is an electronic journalism major and speech communications minor with a 3.89 grade point average on a 4.00 scale. She hopes to have a career in television sportscasting.

            At NMU, she has been involved with the following organizations: Public Relations Student Society of America; Media Alliance of Communication Students; Student Advisory Athletic Council; Golden Key International Honor Society; and Public Eye News, the student-operated television news program. 

            Baker was also a four-year letter winner on the Wildcat varsity soccer team.

            “I hope my message will remind the graduates that they take a piece of Northern Michigan University with them, no matter where they go, and they leave a little bit of themselves at NMU,” said Baker. 

            The commencement ceremony will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Superior Dome.
