KFC’s Extra Crispy Colonel will be giving the commencement address to the Art Institute of Portland on Friday, June 15 at 5:30 p.m. PDT in Portland, Oregon. Every year, celebrities deliver inspiring speeches to new graduates. However, ours will be the first one delivered by the Extra Crispy Colonel (as played by legendary Hollywood icon George Hamilton).

The Colonel will share a bit of his secret recipe to success in life, which he credits to several trials, tribulations, and failures. It’s a story of perseverance and dedication, one that we can all relate to (especially those who are about to venture out into the real world) because we’ve all worked very hard to get where we are today even if the path was a bit unconventional. I guess you could even call it the Hard Way.

Please keep an eye out for the full speech, to be posted to KFC’s social channels on Friday evening, June 15.
