1902FEATURED SPEAKER: ARNE DUNCAN

Arne Duncan is currently serving as U.S. Secretary of Education. He was appointed by President-elect Barack Obama and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Inauguration Day 2009.

Duncan has called education "the most pressing issue facing America," adding that "preparing young people for success in life is not just a moral obligation of society" but also an "economic imperative."

He is working with President Obama and with all those involved in education to enhance education in America. See related story HERE.

1902HONORARY DEGREE : DAVE BARTHOLOMEW

Working in his hometown of New Orleans, Dave Bartholomew helped develop and define the sound of rhythm & blues in the Fifties.

He is a man of many talents: bandleader, trumpet player, songwriter, producer, arranger, talent scout, businessman, and more. Although he never made the pop charts under his own name, Bartholomew was a key figure in the transition from jump blues and big-band swing to rhythm & blues and rock and roll.
