President Barack Obama to Deliver Commencement Address at Hampton University

Posted by GingerKiD on February 11, 2010

President Barack Obama will serve as the Hampton University’s 140th commencement speaker on May 9, 2010.

After having already spoke at HU before his historic march to the White House, now President Obama is coming back to “Our Home by the Sea” to see off the graduating Class of 2010.

The connection to HU goes back to the Presidents Inaugural Parade, when the Marching Force were invited to play for the President and the First Lady on national TV.

“We are honored that President Obama has accepted Hampton’s invitation to speak to our 2010 graduates during our commencement exercises,” said HU President William R. Harvey. “His commitment to leadership, education and service is parallel to Hampton’s mission from our beginning in 1868. He is an inspiration for our students to make the world a better place by becoming the very best leaders, educators, doctors, lawyers, financial analyst and scientist that they can be.”

More details will be announced at a later date.
