President Obama in a Speech on Poverty and Opportunity Referred to a Student at Hunter College!

Dear Commons Community,

President Obama in a speech commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the War on Poverty this afternoon told a story of  Roger Brown, a student at Hunter College, who is the first in his family to go to college.  During his comments, President Obama referred to Hunter as “one of the best colleges” in the country.  His comments about Roger start at about the 20:30 mark.

Hooray for Roger and hooray for Hunter.
