“I cannot express how much being chosen as the Grady Convocation speaker truly means to me,” said Womack. “Little Anna Catherine, who grew up coming to football games with her dad and admiring Grady on the walk into the stadium, would be grinning big right now! It is a moment I have dreamed of for years. Grady has been the biggest part of my college career. From professors to students, this college has given me so much, and I am honored to give back and represent the most resilient people I know, the Class of 2024.”
