Commence with the Commencements 2019 – Trending in Education – Episode 189

Inspired by Robert Smith’s announcement that his family would help pay off the debt of the 2019 Morehouse College graduating class, we dive into commencement season. We look at what makes a great speech to graduates. Looking at speeches from this year and hearkening back to the best from the past few years, what common themes tie them together? Do the best speeches combine compassion and humor? 

Mike muses about working on his own commencement speech and what that might entail. Brandon shares a story of his own brush with commencement greatness. 


Dust off your cap and gown and have a listen!
