Holcomb to deliver Ball State commencement address

Gov. Eric Holcomb is set to become the first Indiana governor to deliver a spring commencement speech at Ball State University while in office.

The governor will speak at the Muncie campus' Arts Terrace during the May 4 commencement.

Holcomb says he's excited "to celebrate this major milestone" with the graduating class during Ball State's centennial year.

Although Holcomb is a graduate of southeastern Indiana's Hanover College, his wife, Janet, is a Ball State graduate and a longtime supporter. She grew up on a horse farm near Muncie.

She holds bachelor's and master's degrees in fine arts from Ball State.
