Kennedy Odede ’12 to continue being baller w/ opening acts Clinton & Penn

If you haven’t been stalking the university website’s front page or The Wesleyan Connection lately, you might not know that Wes philanthropist superstar Kennedy Odede ’12 is due to appear as a panelist at the fourth annual Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) meeting that is to be held in a couple of days. He will be joining Big Bill himself along with super-duper-activist and really-serious-actor-guy Sean Penn.

Odede, the co-founder of the “Shining Hope for Communities” non-profit, will also speak at the event’s closing plenary session entitled “A Conversation with President Clinton.”

For more info, you can go to the Wesleyan Connection article on it (click here).

Congrats, big guy, and good luck!

PS: According to the ACB, Kennedy’s jacket apparently went missing last Friday night over at Psi U. I’m not sure if it’s still missing, but if it is, help the man out, would ya? Presumably it’s not the same jacket pictured in the image up there. But I assume it too is similarly shiny. Original post can be found here.
