Gannon University announced today that Glenn Stearns, the founder of Stearns Lending LLC as well as the star of Discovery Channel’s “Undercover Billionaire” will make his return to Erie to be the keynote speaker at Gannon’s spring commencement.
The commencement is set for Sunday, May 9 at the Erie Insurance Arena.
