Commencement - Jenifer Lewis

Jenifer Lewis ’79 returned to her alma mater as commencement speaker during its centennial year.

Webster University alumna Jenifer Lewis‘ commencement speech at Webster University’s May 9 ceremony at The Muny drew coverage in the St. Louis Business Journal, as well as prior coverage in the St. Louis American.

  • The Business Journal wrote that “Lewis’ commencement speech was incredible, filled with awesome advice and laughs,” and added a video interview with Lewis.
  • An abbreviated text version of her commencement address — minus the breaks into song she treated audiences to on May 9 — ran in the op/ed section on page 39 of the May 15-21, 2015, issue.
  • Before commencement, she was profiled in the St. Louis American.

You can watch Lewis’ full speech in the video embedded at the top of this post or at this direct link. Additional coverage of the May 9 ceremony at The Muny can be found here.
