This year, we had a pretty gloomy Class of 2020 who couldn’t think of anything worse than not being able to walk across the stage in that cap and gown, have the college president or school principal shake their hand and celebrate their graduation.
I’ve graduated many times – high school, college, law school, three times for doctoral degrees and once for an honorary doctoral degree—but none of that could top what 2020 graduates are getting!
None other than President Barack Obama is going to hold a virtual commencement ceremony for seniors who are graduating nationwide.
Not only will the graduates have B.O. but I understand Michelle Obama will be joining the celebration for several events honoring the class of 2020 as part of a #GraduateTogether2020 special.
That event on Saturday, May 16, 2 p.m. is scheduled to honor students at historically Black colleges and universities after which there is to be a virtual commencement for high school seniors the same day at 8 p.m.
