VIDEO: VH1 Reality Show star to give rousing spring commencement

Around this time of year, students and family members anxiously wait for the announcement of who will give the commencement speech during the spring graduation ceremonies.

In an email announcement, Mason has finally announced that Jonny Sarhanis, a recent star of VH1’s reality show, Ton of Cash, would give the speech 

Sarhanis made waves during his rousing exit speech from the show in September 2011. Since then, he’s been turned into a beacon of encouragement and a symbol of how anyone can make it in this country.

To get a taste of what to expect in May, check out the video:

“He’s an inspiration,” said Chad Greager, a graduating senior. “I like to listen to that speech when at the gym or getting hype before an exam.”

Happy April 1st!
