Commencement speaker:

Acclaimed chef, cookbook author, and TV host Gerry Garvin (aka G. Garvin) will serve as commencement speaker.
Garvin is most widely known for his television series, Turn Up the Heat with G. Garvin, which ran for seven seasons on TV One. The show’s increasing popularity earned the talented artist a second series on the same network entitled G. Garvin: The Road Tour, which premiered in 2007. Garvin also appeared in a Cooking Channel special, Georgia Roadtrip with G. Garvin. He is America’s most down-to-earth chef, and his claim to fame is showing everyday cooks how to keep it simple with a Southern twist.
Beyond possessing business and cooking savvy, Garvin also holds a deep commitment to giving back. Raised by a single mother and a victim of domestic violence, he has been a continued supporter of the Jenesse Center, the oldest domestic violence intervention program in South Los Angeles. He has also become involved with Second Harvest, the nation’s largest charitable hunger-relief organization, through ongoing partnerships with iconic brands such as Kraft, Tyson, and Coca-Cola.
