Governor Baker to Give Commencement Address at Worcester State

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

 

Charlie Baker

Worcester State University announced that Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker will serve as the commencement speaker.

Worcester State’s commencement is set to take place on Saturday, May 19 at 10 a.m. at the DCU Center.

Baker will also receive an honorary degree.

About Baker

Baker was inaugurated on January 8, 2015, as the 72nd Governor of Massachusetts.

In a variety of polls, he consistently ranks as the most popular governor in the country.

During his time as Chief Executive Officer of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, Baker turned a company on the brink of bankruptcy into the nation's highest ranked health care provider for member satisfaction and clinical effectiveness for six straight years.

Baker is considered by many to have a bipartisan approach. His achievements as governor include working with the Legislature to address budget gaps while balancing the state’s books without raising taxes, bolstering local aid for schools and communities, investing in a more reliable public transportation system, and prioritizing funds to fight the opioid and heroin epidemic.

Baker earned a B.A. in English from Harvard College in 1979 and went on to earn an M.B.A. from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
