    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama is urging graduates of Dillard University to continue to fuel their hunger for education and use it to guide and inspire the "next generation of geniuses."

    On Saturday the first lady told the 226 graduates of the historically black college that they have opportunities and skills that their parents and grandparents never could have imagined. She urged them to use those skills to help those coming after them.

    Obama also has received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters from the university.

    She encouraged the graduates to start small, such as through volunteering as a tutor or by rallying their communities to start a mentor program, but Obama didn't reject the possibility of larger contributions, such as serving on a school board, in Congress or as president.
