Hillary Clinton Returns To Wellesley College For 2017 Commencement AddressBy Amanda Foster, UniversityHerald Reporter
Hillary Clinton has kept a low profile after losing the 2016 United States presidential elections to Donald Trump. But a few months after Trump takes his seat as the President of the United States, Hillary Clinton is now breaking her silence.
According to Nick Merrill, Hillary Clinton's spokesperson, it is now confirmed that she is going to lead the 2017 commencement address at the all-women institution, Wellesley College. Every move is closely guarded but Merrill confirms that she is indeed going to go back to Wellesley.
Hillary Clinton is set to deliver the address in May, as reported by CNN. Granted, Clinton did make a few appearances but they were small low-profile events and mostly they have a personal connection to her life.
Now she is leaving her comfort space and into the public spotlight. She starts off in small steps such as her recent booking speeches. She previously spoke in New York to honor Oscar de la Renta. On March 8, she is going to attend International Women's Day and an event at the LGBT Community Center in New York on April 10.
Publications and critics still point out that America still needs Hillary Clinton which is evident in her invitations to events this year. She is considered to have a vital voice in the country.
Now, as the commencement date approaches, many wonder what Hillary Clinton has to say. She was the first ever student to speak at the Wellesley College commencement back in 1969. She was lauded as a student leader after blasting Republican Sen. Edward Brooke. He spoke before her and his speech prompted her to tore hers up.
She continues to speak for the nation and for women even after her defeat. On March 17 she is going to Scranton's St. Patrick's Day dinner, as reported by Irish Central. She is going to deliver the keynote address to motivate women. Something the Society of Irish Women looks forward to during the event.
