Bob Woodward, the Washington Post reporter and editor who helped break the Watergate scandal in the 1970s and continues to chronicle the modern American presidency in best-selling books, will deliver the commencement address this year at Loyola University.

The school announced Friday that Woodward will address the class of 2015 on May 9 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

He will receive an honorary degree along with Angela Hill, the former longtime WWL-TV anchor; former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue; and philanthropist Phyllis M. Taylor, president of the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation.
