Senior Class Speaker

Calling all Seniors!

Now’s your chance to show us what it means to be MMC’s Class of 2021. We’re looking for a senior to represent the graduates and speak at this year’s Commencement Ceremony.

Interested seniors should register for a 15 minute “audition” to showcase how they would represent the Class of 2021 in a speech for this year’s Commencement Ceremony. The audition does not have to be a final version, but should be a prepared three-minute snapshot of the final speech. When selecting finalists, the committee takes a variety of factors into consideration, including originality, enthusiasm, organization, and quality of content.

Auditions will be held:

Wednesday, March 24, 2021, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Thursday, March 25, 2021, 4:00 pm – 6:00pm

Interested applicants must:

  • Be eligible to participate in the Commencement ceremony
  • Be in good academic and judicial standing
  • Serve as an ambassador for the College, its mission, and its values

The Student Speaker Selection Committee will select the top three candidates who will then move forward for a final selection by the Commencement Committee.

The three finalists must be available on Thursday, April 7, 2021 from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm to present their speeches again to the full Commencement Committee for the final selection of Student Speaker.

To sign up for an audition time, you must:

  1. Complete the Senior Class Speaker Registration Form.
  2. Submit a final draft of the (3) minute speech you’d like to give at the Commencement Ceremony on the registration form.
  3. Select one time slot during the “audition” days.
  4. Email an updated copy of your resume to with the subject line: “Senior Class Speaker resume”.

Confirmation of your “audition” time slot will be sent to your MMC email.

The deadline to submit your Senior Class Speaker Registration Form is 5:00 pm on Friday, March 19, 2021.
