Odede ’12 and Posner ’09 Featured on Rock Center with Brian Williams

As I was flipping through the channels this evening, enjoying the waning days of my winter break, I was struck by a cardinal red flash that seemed eerily familiar.  It was, in fact, Kennedy Odede ’12, delivering his final address while a student to the Wesleyan community.  He, along with wife Jessica Posner ’09, were featured on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams for their work building the Kibera School for Girls.

Footage aired from Wesleyan’s 180th Commencement, and featured Kennedy giving a big ol’ hug to President Roth. Video after the jump.

Chelsea Clinton is (arguably) a better journalist than I’ll ever be, so I’ll let her give you the details.
