Jacqueline Van Ovost, and MARAD Administrator Ann Phillips to speak


KINGS POINT, N.Y. (June 8, 2022) – The U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) today announced that the keynote speaker at the 86th Commencement Exercises will be the Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg. He will be joined by General Jacqueline Van Ovost, Commanding Officer of the U.S. Transportation Command, who will be the distinguished graduation speaker. The Maritime Administrator, Rear Admiral Ann Phillips (USN, Ret.), will also speak.

The upcoming commencement ceremony honoring the Class of 2022 will be held at Kings Point on June 18, at 9 a.m. The 86th Commencement Exercises will be open to all spectators. The annual event will be held on Tomb Field in Brooks Stadium, and will also be livestreamed to those interested in viewing.

“We are honored to welcome Secretary Buttigieg to his first graduation at USMMA. We are also very pleased to welcome back families and friends to the annual graduation event after two years that were affected by the pandemic,” said Vice Admiral Jack Buono, 13th Superintendent at USMMA. “The Class of 2022 has embodied our motto of Acta Non Verba for the last four years, and we have high hopes for their success as they leave the Academy.”

The slate of speakers is rounded out by distinguished Alumnus speaker, Mr. Michael Toop, who is retiring after 17 years as head coach of the USMMA football team.

Pete Buttigieg currently serves as the 19th Secretary of Transportation, having been sworn in on Feb. 3, 2021. Prior to joining the Biden-Harris Administration, Secretary Buttigieg served two terms as mayor of his hometown of South Bend, Ind. A graduate of Harvard University and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, Buttigieg served for seven years as an officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve, taking a leave of absence from the mayor’s office for a deployment to Afghanistan in 2014.

Gen. Jacqueline D. Van Ovost is the 14th Commander of U.S. Transportation Command, one of 11 combatant commands in the Department of Defense. USTRANSCOM’s mission is to project and sustain military power globally in order to assure our friends and allies, deter potential adversaries, and if necessary, respond to win decisively. Gen. Van Ovost graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1988 with a degree in Aeronautical Engineering. She also holds master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from California State University, and Military Arts and Sciences, and Strategic Studies from the Air War College, Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala.
