Clinton to Deliver Commencement Speech to 8th Graders
Bill Clinton canceled his UCLA Commencement Speech scheduled for this Friday due to the "never-ending" labor disputes between University of California officials and American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (it's not the first time for a celebrity to drop their speech for the same issue).
But today, Bill Clinton will speak to outgoing eighth-graders from Riviera Hall Lutheran School in Torrance. Why this school? Clinton's nephew Tyler --son of Clinton's brother, Roger-- is graduating.
And this is not the first time Clinton has dropped by the school. He made an unannounced visit in 2001, "shocking staff and students alike when a motorcade wheeled in and Tyler, age 7 at the time, stepped out alongside the nation's 42nd president."Class, this is my Uncle Bill," the then 2nd-grader announced.
