Rediske and Moore to serve as Commencement Marshals
November 28, 2017
AWRI's Rick Rediske and History's Louis Moore are the faculty super-stars who will help lead the commencement procession on December 9, 2017, 10 a.m. at Van Andel Arena. They were chosen as CLAS marshals for outstanding work that has made a significant contribution to the community this fall.
Professor Rediske was a key expert in unraveling the ground and water pollution associated with the Rockford area discovery of illegal dumping of waste from the Wolverine plant. Working with a community group, his findings brought to light the extent and consequences of this dumping.
Professor Moore has been a frequent contributor to tv, radio, print and online discussions of historic and current activism against racism and inequality. He is also author of two books which were published this fall:
I Fight For A Living and We Will Win The Day: The Civil Rights Movement, The Black Athlete, And The Quest For Equality.
