Commencement time is approaching and Supreme Court justices are often sought-after speakers for undergraduate and law school ceremonies. So, it’s not surprising that Justice Martin Jenkins will deliver the keynote address at Santa Clara University’s 173rd commencement ceremony on June 15, especially since he’s also an alum.

Jenkins, class of 1977, is quoted in the school’s news release, “My Jesuit education has informed virtually every aspect of my life, and I am delighted to share this special day with a new generation of exceptional graduates from my alma mater.” The release reports, “Jenkins received his B.A. in history from Santa Clara University, where he played on the Bronco football team as a defensive back.”
