A Hollywood producer had some words of advice for the 318 people who graduated from Roanoke College yesterday. Joe (boo-SHAY) Boucher's not only a producer with shows like "The Simpsons" and "King of The Hill" to his credit - he's a Roanoke College alumnus. News 7's Richard Lesko caught up with him before his speech.

He doesn't look like your average commencement speaker. A 19-87 graduate of Roanoke College, Joe Boucher has made a name for himself, in animation. He was a business major in college, but a dream took him out west.

A native New Yorker, he came to Salem on a leap of faith, never visiting the city or the school before he arrived. He says he drew on that experience in Hollywood.

[RUNS= 14]

Saturday afternoon, he advised a fresh-faced group of graduates ready to make their own mark on the world. Boucher says he remembers his commencement, but in the rush of graduation, doesn't remember much of what was said.

Hopefully, Boucher has left more of an impression on the class of 2-thousand-one, than the former Ambassador to the United Nations left on him. RL, N7, Salem.))
