Chad Pregracke is getting pretty used to giving speeches. The 2013 CNN Hero of the Year will give the Commencement address at the 46th annual Carl Sandburg College Commencement.

The College's Commencement will take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 15 in Hegg Auditorium at Galesburg High School.

"We couldn't be more excited to have Chad Pregracke and Rep. Moffitt join us for this year's Commencement ceremonies," Sandburg President Dr. Lori Sundberg said. "Both are champions of doing work for the greater good of others, and we look forward to hearing them share their messages with our students. Their years of dedication and selflessness are a great example for our newest graduates."

Pregracke is the founder and president of Living Lands and Waters non-for-profit that organizes river cleanup.
