    No doubt Ms. Kwan will be a "Doctor" in her own right in due course.

    That is an incredibly nice honor for her.

    O-

    I love being a fan of Michelle!! She just makes it so easy-I am so proud of everything she has accomplished. I wonder how she was chosen to do that? It does just seem like yesterday I was watching Salome in my freshman college dorm room. She really has grown up to become an amazing woman. I seriously wish my lazy ass could find some inspiration because of it. ::goes and gets chips and glass of wine instead of cleaning or going to the gym::

    I found the college website and on it is the President's blog @ http://blogs.svc.edu/president/
    where she describes her reasons for choosing Michelle for this honor.

    While on their site, I found the college President's email addy and wrote her that she should consider (if not already in the planning) webcasting the commencement ceremonies and not only would it attract a large viewership from her many fans, but would also be a great PR move for the University to promote such coverage.

    She replied back saying: "Very good suggestion. Let me see what we can do.
    And thanks for the kind words on the selection". Karen Gross.

    If something develops from this I will update in this thread.

    Thank you for posting that blog address. I read further than her blog about Michelle and was glad I did.
