Read President Obama’s letter to the Class of 2016!
President Obama sent his congratulations to the Minneapolis Public Schools students graduating this year. 
He praised students, writing, “Each of you represents a unique piece of the mosaic formed by students in Minneapolis and across our Nation. You embody an America that finds unity in its diversity, draws strength from a spirit of common purpose, and aspires to reach the breakthroughs of tomorrow. Unencumbered by what has been and unafraid of new frontiers, you remind us that what has kept our country moving forward…has always been our unwavering belief in the possibilities of the future.”
He closed his letter to the graduates by saying, “As you reflect on the efforts that brought you to this moment and look toward all that lies ahead, know that your President is proud of you and inspired by your generation.”
