New York Times Spotlights NYU Wagner Convocation Ceremony Keynote Address

The New York Times online spotlight of 2015 graduation speeches around the country, "Cap and Gown," highlighted NYU Wagner's Convocation speaker Cody Keenan, the chief speechwriter for President Obama. In The Times' coverage, Cody was joined by such luminaries as First Lady Michelle Obama (for Tuskegee University), Apple chief executive Tim Cook (for George Washington University), and Vice President Joe Biden (for Yale University).
