“Full speed ahead!” – President Obama gives third Commencement address to United States Naval Academy
Our Commander in Chief will become the 12th President on May 22 to give a commencement address at the United States Naval Academy. This will be his third and final commencement speech of 2009 having delivered a speech to Arizona State University on May 13 and this Sunday, May 17, at the University of Notre Dame.
The U.S. Naval Academy has had the distinct pleasure of hosting the most Presidential Commencement addresses (The Military Academy at West Point follows at 10, Air Force Academy at 8 and the Coast Guard at 7).
President Obama’s message to the students at Arizona State University was “One thing I know about a body of work is that it’s never finished,” he said. “It’s cumulative. It deepens and expands with every day that you give your best, and give back, and contribute to the life of this nation.”
To commemorate this incredible day for the U.S. Naval Academy students, Church Hill Classics has created an exclusive U. S. Naval Academy commencement keepsake frame. This is a wonderful way for the students to save their ticket by framing it alone or along with a picture of themselves.
