Grassley to speak at Belle Plaine commencement


Sen. Charles Grassley has accepted an invitation to be Commencement speaker at Belle Plaine High School Sunday, May 23.

Student Body President Anthony Jones arranged the appearance of the five-term Republican senator, who is seeking re-election this year.

“I e-mailed his Washington, D.C. office and spoke via telephone to his secretary. I asked if he would be interested and, after deliberation, he decided to attend,” Jones said.

Grassley’s address will fill a time slot previously reserved for presentation of senior awards and scholarships.  This year, awards and scholarships will be announced during Red Carpet Senior Award Night at the King Theatre Wednesday, May 19, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The 3 p.m. Commencement ceremony and Red Carpet Senior Award Night are open to the public.
