The University of Maryland is holding its main graduation ceremony Wednesday night at Xfinity Center, where Under Armour founder and CEO Kevin Plank, a former Maryland football special teams captain, will deliver the commencement address.

You can watch the entire event here:

Plank is a graduate of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business, and is one of the primary donors for the New Cole Field House. He graduated from the school in 1996, and currently serves on the University of Maryland's Board of Trustees.

Testudo Times would like to congratulate the class of 2016. We wish you all well, and go Terps!
