Congrats UTA

Today it was announced that First Lady Laura Bush will be the commencement speaker this spring at UTA. UTA was one of two schools Mrs. Bush will address. This is a big deal and a coup of a sort for UT-Arlington!!

I even like the way our student body responded to the announcement, especially compared to the way other schools respond to the announcement that an administration big-wig is showing up:
Student Congress President Zac Sanders, a graduating political science senior, welcomes the opportunity to have such a strong political figure speak.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have the first lady speak at my graduation," he said. "Laura Bush is a native Texan. It’s my honor to have her at the UTA campus."

Graduating biology senior Ali Farah will attend the celebration and anticipates Bush's visit.

"I don't agree with everything her husband does, but I am interested in what she will have to say," he said. "It's going to be good for the school."
