Hermione Hippo will deliver the 2016 commencement address at the University of West Terrier on June 1, it was announced today.
The President and Governors of the University made the announcement on the UWT web site this morning.
A spokesAnimal for the university said they were “deeply touched” that Hermione was willing to give of her time to address the school’s graduating students.
“She is a very busy professional and academic and even though she was our first choice for 2016, we realized she may not have the time to prepare a speech. But, true to her nature, Hermione dove in and tackled the job with her usual gusto. We very much look forward to hearing her speak on Wednesday.”
The assistant professor in the UWT School of Medicine and head nurse at the Park Hospital for the Afflicted and Infirm is expected to speak on the topic of nutrition and mental health.
