Southern Methodist University alumnus, philanthropist, and legendary sports figure Clark Hunt is set to be the featured speaker at SMU's December Commencement Convocation on Saturday, Dec. 17, according to SMU's website.


The ceremony is set to begin at 9 a.m. in Moody Coliseum, and it will also be live-streamed on the official university website.


“Clark Hunt’s tireless devotion to philanthropy and his dedication to uniting communities through sports is exemplary,” SMU President Gerald Turner told SMU.edu. “As our students prepare to launch their careers, I hope that Clark’s remarks encourage them to foster a heart for giving and community involvement wherever they go.”


Currently a member of the SMU Board of Trustees, Hunt graduated in 1987 with a bachelor's degree in business administration. He eventually went on to become the chairman and CEO of the National Football League's Kansas City Chiefs, a founding investor-operator of Major League Soccer, a member of that organization's board of governors, and the chairman and CEO of FC Dallas.


Hunt has received a number of accolades across his work history. He was named one of SMU's Cox School of Business Outstanding Young Alumni in 2004 and won the SMU Cox School of Business Distinguished Alumni Award in 2018, as well as the SMU Distinguished Alumni Award in 2020.
