Amy Poehler will be the Class Day Speaker for this May's Commencement exercises, the Senior Class Committee announced earlier today.
Poehler, a Boston-native, former cast member of Saturday Night Live, and current lead actress in the NBC comedy "Parks and Recreation," will headline the day's speeches. The ceremony will also feature the traditional Ivy and Harvard orations, as well as remarks from Dean of the College Evelynn M. Hammonds.
"We wanted someone people could recognize, who could give a funny and engaging speech," Senior Class Marshall Toby Stein '11 said in an interview with the Harvard Gazette. "During her time on SNL, Amy was a part of our growing up, and there's no doubt she's pretty hilarious."
Last year's speaker was veteran reporter Christiane Amanpour.
