Award-winning actress and Meridian-native Sela Ward is delivering commencement addresses this weekend at her alma mater, the University of Alabama.
Ward, best known for her award-winning portrayals as Lily Sammler on “Once and Again” and Teddy Reed on “Sisters,” is a 1977 graduate of UA’s College of Communication and Information Sciences. She received two Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe for her work on “Once and Again” and “Sisters.”
This marks the first time in decades that commencement ceremonies are being held in Bryant-Denny Stadium. The venue change is due to renovations in Coleman Coliseum.
The larger stadium setting will also allow for August graduates who choose to participate in the May ceremony to do so.
