Tuesday morning, the graduating Class of 2017 revealed in a video announcement that esteemed Hollywood actress and Langley alum, Lauren Graham (’84), will have the honor of addressing Seniors as the commencement speaker for graduation on June 15, 2017.

The announcement came as a surprise to many Seniors, who burst into cheer after the video was played during a Saxon Time meeting in the auditorium.
