‘Lafayette’ Visits Lafayette
Daveed Diggs catapulted into stardom portraying a founding father. But not just any founding father: our founding father. Diggs, who won a Tony and a Grammy award for his Broadway debut as the Marquis de Lafayette in the musical Hamilton, spoke to a packed house in Colton Chapel April 10 as the Senior Speaker, an event supported by the Class of 1963 Speaker Endowment Fund. Diggs signed autographs and even complimented the artistic talents of our own President Alison Byerly for her lip-sync rendition of “Guns and Ships” for the President’s Challenge for Financial Aid.
