Posted

CAMBRIDGE — The administration of Cambridge-South Dorchester High School announced on May 24 that Acting Chief of the Capitol Police Yogananda Pittman would be the Commencement Speaker for the Class of 2021. She will deliver her remarks to seniors at their graduation on May 26.


Chief Pittman is currently Acting Chief of Police, in the United States Capitol Police Department. She has a long history in law enforcement, after entering the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center Academy in Glynco, Georgia, graduating from the program in September of 2001.


Acting Chief Pittman was one of the first African-American female supervisors to attain the rank of Captain in 2012.


She grew up in Cambridge, and attended St. Claire Elementary School, Maple Elementary, Mace’s Lane Middle School, and graduated from C-SD in 1991.


Principal Jerome Stover said, “We are so excited and can’t wait to hear her in person; our seniors deserve to have a grand event, and I have a feeling Chief Pittman’s words will be very inspirational to our kids.”
