One of the most esteemed Universities in the country for African Americans is getting its past due, now that President Barack Obama has confirmed plans to be the speaker for the University’s 140th commencement.

The President of the University Dr. William R. Harvey has confirmed the exciting news to students and alumni through a press release saying,

“”We are honored that President Obama has accepted Hampton’s invitation to speak to our 2010 graduates during our commencement exercises.

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 analysts and scientists that they can be.”

Hampton University’s commencement will continue in its tradition of taking place on Mother’s Day, this year on May 9, 2010.

Congratulations to Hampton University and the class of 2010.

I love, I love, my H.I.U…..
