Meredith Siegfried, CEO of NORDAM, will speak to more than 1,000 graduates at Tulsa Community College’s commencement on May 10 in the Mabee Center at Oral Roberts University. NORDAM is one of the largest independently owned aerospace companies in the world, and it is based in Tulsa.

Siegfried said giving the address is an opportunity for her to give back to the Tulsa community as well as TCC—a place where she has enjoyed taking Spanish classes for the past two years. She said she is “wowed” by her fellow students, many of whom have two or three jobs, are caring for children and struggling to make ends meet.

“Their determination commands my admiration and respect,” she said. “I am deeply impressed by the student base, the professors and the facilities.”

Siegfried will be speaking to a capacity crowd, as TCC expects the largest graduate ceremony in its history to accept degrees and certificates of completion on May 10.
