The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, 2012 Commencement Speaker at Trinity Washington University

The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, graduate of Trinity Washington University, class of 1962.  2012 marks the 50-year class reunion of the 1962 graduating class of Trinity Washington University.

How appropriate to have Nancy Pelosi deliver the commencement speech on Sunday, May 20, 2012.  It was a beautiful day for a graduation, and Trinity’s graduates were quite surprised to learn who was delivering the commencement speech.  Up until the last minute, they did not know who the commencement speaker was going to be.  As I walked toward campus, reading the program, I was overjoyed to see that The Honorable Nancy Pelosi had been chosen to address the Class of 2012.

Not only did she address the class, but she gave every graduate (464 graduates) a copy of her most recent book, Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters.  Mrs. Pelosi believes all men and women are created equal, and that the sky really is the limit for our daughters and granddaughters.  Nancy Pelosi made history when she became the first woman Speaker of the House, and she continues to inspire women of all ages in Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters.  She encourages women to never lose faith, to speak out and make their voices heard, to focus on what matters most, and to follow their dreams wherever they lead.
