I was pleased to join Chicago State University and the College of Pharmacy in recognizing three community giants: former Senate President Emil Jones, Jr., Bronzeville Children’s Museum President Peggy Montes and former University of Illinois and Illinois Board of Higher Education Member Dr. Frances Carroll.

I am a firm believer in giving people their flowers while they can smell them, and these three community trailblazers have earned an entire nursery worth of flowers.

Congratulations to you all!!!

Graduation ceremonies are some of my favorite things to participate in; to see the hope on the faces of the graduates and the pride beaming on the faces of their parents and educators warms my heart.

Celebrating the Class of 2018 of Arthur Dixon Elementary School, and providing the Keynote address under this year’s theme, “Oh the places you’ll go!” by Dr. Seuss.
