Former candidate Ben Carson is PBAU’s grad speaker


Dr. Ben Carson won’t be keynoting the GOP convention this year but he will be the speaker this Saturday, May 7, at Palm Beach Atlantic University’s commencement.

In an event open only to graduates and guests who hold tickets, the neurosurgeon and former presidential candidate — a resident of West Palm’s Ibis community — will speak at 2 p.m. at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. For those not attending, the ceremony will be live streamed on and can be followed on social media using the hashtag #PBAGrad16.

Nearly 600 candidates for bachelor’s, master’s and professional doctoral degrees from the West Palm Beach, Orlando, Wellington and online campuses will participate in the ceremony.
