DE PERE, WI (WTAQ) - A St. Norbert College graduate who became a Hollywood designer and author will speak to this spring's grads at his alma mater.
Chris Ayers will be the commencement speaker May 18th for the De Pere school. He'll also receive the President's Medal for his work.
Ayers has written four "Daily Zoo" books, which resulted from his own battle with blood cancer. Part of his book sales are donated to cancer-related research groups and charities.
Ayers' first movie design work came in 2000 for "Bubble Boy." He's had more than two dozen movie credits since then -- including "Men in Black II," "Star Trek," "The Incredible Hulk," "Austin Powers in GoldMember," and "The Santa Clause II."
