First lady Michelle Obama gave the commencement speech at George Washington University challenging the graduates Sunday to “keep giving” through community service work and to “keep engaging” with the world.
Obama spoke to some 5,000 graduates and their families at the ceremony on the National Mall. She agreed to be their speaker after students, faculty and staff met her challenge to complete 100,000 hours of community service.
“I have one more request to make of you, one more challenge,” Obama said during her speech. “Keep going. Keep giving. Keep engaging.”
