Former Gov. Deval Patrick will deliver the main address at Harvard University's graduation ceremony this May.

Patrick, who left office last month after serving two terms and is now a visiting fellow at MIT, received both his bachelor's and law degree from Harvard.

“Deval Patrick is an extraordinarily distinguished alumnus, a deeply dedicated public servant, and an inspiring embodiment of the American dream,” Harvard President Drew Faust said in a statement. “We greatly look forward to welcoming him home to Harvard on Commencement Day.”

The commencement will be held on May 28.
