United States Ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman speaks at Seventh Annual Commencement

This was Ambassador Silliman’s second commencement speech at AUIS. Recalling his previous address in 2013, Silliman said, “I had the honor of addressing the graduating class here in 2013 – five years ago – before most of you began your collegiate journey. The fact that AUIS invited me back to speak a second time can mean only one of two things. First, it could be that I am a brilliant speaker. I kind of like that idea. Or it could mean that Bruce Ferguson really needs to expand the pool of potential commencement speakers in the future.”
