    Nicole Tinson was speaking last April at a Dillard University scholarship luncheon in Los Angles, her hometown. She acknowledges that she probably shouldn't have been handed the microphone. Because when got it, she said made a bold promise. She said that as president of Dillard University's class of 2014 she was going to make sure that President Barack Obama spoke at commencement. It was only after she announced her plan that she said to herself, "I'm going to (have to) figure this out."

    Tinson failed at her stated task, but it doesn't appear that anybody at Dillard cares. Because even though she didn't convince the president to come to campus for the May 10 commencement exercises, she did convince his wife, Michelle Obama.

    Marc Barnes, vice president for institutional advancement at Dillard, said that Hillary Clinton spoke at commencement in 2007, after her husband Bill Clinton had been president and she had been elected to the Senate, but next month's speech by Michelle Obama will be the first one Dillard has heard presented by a current occupant of the White House.

    When asked why she aimed so high in searching for a speaker to address her class, Tinson told a story that illustrates the continuing importance of historically black institutions such as Dillard. Her college counselor didn't think she should apply to college.
