— Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be the keynote speaker for Ave Maria School of Law’s first commencement ceremony in Naples.

Commencement is May 15 at the Naples Philharmonic Center for the Arts.

"This is a momentous occasion for the Ave Maria School of Law," said Eugene R. Milhizer, acting dean and president, in a prepared statement. "Our first commencement in Naples is a truly historic occasion and we are honored that Governor Bush -- a leader whose achievements are known well to the people of Naples and throughout Florida -- will be our keynote speaker."

Since the school’s founding in 2000, commencement speakers have included U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas and former archbishop of Detroit Adam Cardinal Maida. The school moved to Naples from Ann Arbor, Mich., in 2009.
