Ithaca College confirmed Thursday that David Boreanaz ’91, the actor known for “Bones” and his role as Angel in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” will be this year’s commencement speaker.
Diane Gayeski, dean of the Park School of Communications, said the students voted for Boreanaz, and because she had been in contact with him before, she reached out to see if he would be available.
“It all happened very quickly, I called him yesterday in the morning and told him that he was selected and he said he just needed a little while to check on his schedule,” Gayeski said. “I expected that it would be a week or two until he could confirm and within 15 minutes he called back and said that it was confirmed.”
Dave Maley, associate director of media relations, said Boreanaz confirmed today that he will give the speech to the Class of 2013.
“We’re very excited that he accepted, and we’re looking forward to hearing from him,” Maley said.
Boreanaz announced he would be coming earlier today on Twitter. In the tweet he said, “Honored to be giving the commencement speech to the class of 2013.”
