Speech, speech, speech!

Chico State’s commencement is nearly upon us. And with that comes chatter about speakers—who’s making an appearance where? The president is speaking at what college? Chico State is continuing with its student speaker tradition. Saturday will be Jennifer Tourtillo, a construction management major, and Sunday will feature journalism student and former Orion Editor Ashley Gebb.
