Poole College Announces Jeremiah Graham as the Fall Student Commencement Speaker
NC State Poole College of Management has named Jeremiah Graham as the student commencement speaker for the fall ceremony. Graham will be graduating with a Bachelor of Science in business administration with a concentration in marketing and a minor in art and design.
Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, Graham was a general body member of the American Marketing Association (AMA) and Arts at NC State. He is currently an organic social media marketing intern at Apple, Inc.
I feel like my voice has been heard and I am able to give back to the ones that gave me an opportunity.
“Being selected as the commencement speaker means everything to me as an individual that has felt underrepresented and counted out for a long period in my life,” said Graham. “I feel like my voice has been heard and I am able to give back to the ones that gave me an opportunity. I feel very grateful for this opportunity, it’s very special for me.”
Graham’s most memorable event at Poole College was an AMA social event that was a mixer networking event at a bowling alley with arcade games.
“Following graduation, I hope to continue working with Apple full time within the digital marketing, social media marketing or creative space,” said Graham.
