Mitt Romney recently visited Coe College to deliver the keynote speech at their commencement and to receive an honorary doctor of public service degree.
Some highlights from these articles:
>>>>>"Coe College graduates were challenged to jump into the deep waters of life, to live a purpose-driven life beyond the borders of their wants and desires. ``Our nation needs people who will launch themselves into the deep waters, who will get out of the shallows, -- who will push the boundaries of learning and profession, who will love their country enough to serve it and participate in the principles of democracy,''
>>>>>Romney encouraged graduates to be selfless. ``Get out of the shallow waters of selfishness and give yourself to causes greater than yourself,'' Romney said. ``Launch yourself into the deep waters of great causes.'' Romney said those causes include helping others and growing in faith — a theme he said resonates in the nation's heartland even as polls show cynicism about politics and government in the rest of the country.
>>>>>"Romney, who is not seeking re-election, vowed to return often to Iowa in his post as head of the Republican Governor's Association."
Looks like we'll be seeing plenty more of Mitt around here! An e-mail from a staff member @ Coe stated that his address was "very well-received."
I'm trying to find out if I can get a transcript of his speech to post here.
