It isn’t often you can wake up at 4:00am in order to see your cousin graduate from college. Well, that is what I did yesterday. The main reason for the early wakeup call? Not one, but two Presidents of the United States were speaking (George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton) at UNH’s graduation.
I was very impressed with the speeches given by the faculty and the two Presidents. Lots of humor and having fun, despite awful weather (rain and temps in the 40s). It was the first time I ever saw someone who was President speak. Definitely something I will always remember.
Then Senator Obama was speaking at my former university, SNHU. If only I had graduated a few years later…it would have been really neat to see him speak.
