OGDEN — Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman will deliver the commencement speech to Weber State graduates.

Weber State University officials say Huntsman will speak to more than 4,300 graduates during Friday's ceremony. He will also be awarded an honorary degree.

A Republican, Huntsman is a former Ambassador to China.

He has called on the GOP to broaden its appeal before the next presidential election. He also recently came out in support of same sex-marriage and joined a bipartisan group of political activists calling for Republicans and Democrats to work together.
