SPC Commencement Speaker, Paula Boggs

The St. Philip's College 137th commencement ceremony is confirmed for May 12 at 7 p.m. in Freeman Coliseum at 3201 E. Houston St., with commencement keynote speaker Paula Boggs.

Boggs is the founder of Boggs Media, LLC, a business that manages her music, speaking and other creative business activities. The military veteran is also a philanthropist, fundraiser, public speaker, lawyer and musician. Boggs is also a board member of numerous for-profit and non-profit organizations.

She served as executive vice president, general counsel and secretary, law and corporate affairs at Starbucks Corporation (2002-2012). Her prior professional experience includes serving as vice president, legal, for products, operations and technology at Dell Computer Corporation, and as a partner at the law firm of Preston Gates & Ellis, LLP. She also had a 14-year career in public service, including serving as an assistant U.S. attorney, and in various capacities as an attorney for the U.S. Army, the Department of Defense and the White House Office of Legal Counsel. She served eight years as a regular officer in the Army, and earned Army airborne wings and a Congressional appointment to the US Naval Academy – among America’s first women to do so.

A graduate of the University of California at Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), Boggs earned a bachelor’s degree in international studies (economics, energy policy) from Johns Hopkins University. She was also an adjunct professor at the University of Washington School of Law. Since leaving Starbucks, Boggs has volunteered for a presidential campaign as a national surrogate, served on both for-profit and non-profit boards, and raises and gives money in support of causes she champions. In 2013, President Obama appointed her to the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. Boggs has written and recorded two music CD’s (16 songs), and owns the U.S. copyrights. She is also a voting member of the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
