Betsy DeVos Booed During Commencement Speech

Betsy DeVos recently was invited to speak at a graduation ceremony at Bethune-Cookman University. As she began, the crowd began to loudly boo her and many of the students stood up turned their back towards her. 

The school president finally stepped in and told the students that if they didn’t stop, they would get their diplomas mailed to them.

Personally, I thought this was very encouraging to see and brought a smile to my face. DeVos is immensely under-qualified to be Secretary of Education and the students were upset that their college graduation was tainted by her. It may have been more powerful if they just stood up and turned around without the booing, but it was still a demonstration how young will not put up with Trump and his cronies.
