Governor Terry McAuliffe will deliver the commencement address this year at Virginia Tech.
This ceremony is May 16 in Blacksburg.
Having the newly-elected governor speak to graduates is becoming a tradition in Blacksburg.
Since 1990 with Doug Wilder, every governor the spring after the election has addressed the crowd.
A spokesperson for Governor McAuliffe says he may speak at one additional graduation this year at another Virginia college or university.
