Gabrielle Giffords, Mark Kelly to address Arizona law school graduation

PHOENIX — Former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, will address commencement at the University of Arizona law school this weekend.

The school made the announcement Wednesday.

Giffords represented the Tucson area first as a state legislator from 2000 to 2005, then in Congress from 2006 to 2012. She was nearly killed in January 2011 after she was shot in the head at an event in Tucson.

She resigned from Congress in 2012 to focus on her recovery.

The ceremony was scheduled Saturday at 2 p.m. on campus at the McKale Center.
