Ray Mabus, former secretary of the Navy, governor of Mississippi, and U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia, will be the keynote speaker at the University of Arizona's 154th Commencement on May 11.
Appointed by President Barack Obama, Mabus served as secretary of the Navy from 2009-2017, the longest tenure since World War I. As secretary, he focused on four fundamentals: people (sailors, Marines and their families); platforms (building more ships and aircraft); power (moving the services to alternative energy); and partnerships (with the American people and allies around the world). In June 2010, the president assigned Mabus the additional task of developing a long-term Gulf Coast restoration plan following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
