Sheriff will speak at

Vanguard graduation

Orange County Sheriff Michael Carona will speak to the class of

2003 at Vanguard University's commencement ceremony on May 10.

Carona, not a stranger to the Vanguard campus, has spoken at the

university before and has seen a number of sheriff deputies graduate

from the private school. He is also a friend of the university's


president, Murray Dempster.

Carona's extensive background as the head of the second largest

sheriff's department in California, Marshal of Orange County,

co-chair of the Amber Alert Program and the only sheriff on the

Emergency Response Senior Advisory Committee for the Homeland

Security Council, university officials hope, will serve as an

excellent platform from which to speak about the futures of

Vanguard's graduates.
