June 2, 2010Finding Your Passion: Remarks by Secretary Arne Duncan at the Benjamin Banneker High School Commencement
Good afternoon, students, parents and teachers.
I am here today to celebrate your success and Banneker's success. They often say that success has many parents.
Your success is earned, first of all, from your hard work and perseverance -- qualities that are in each of you -- and so I begin by saluting you, the class of 2010.
