Katie to UVA: And Monticello gets Nadia on July 4

The University of Virginia's 183rd Final Exercises will be held May 20 with a Lawn-centric ceremony begins featuring Katie Couric as commencement speaker. But in another major local speech development, this year's Independence Day celebration and naturalization ceremony at Monticello will feature Nadia Com─âneci, the first Olympic gymastic to score a perfect 10 in a routine, something that happened in the summer of 1976, shortly before a soap-opera theme somehow became inextricably linked to her persona.
