Hi Melinda, it is very thoughtful of Ann to return to her point of origin and encourage others to live their dreams. I hope she is well received.

Melinda--Thanks for the scoop about Ann.  I didn't know her roots, but I love following her on the Today show and other specials she has done.

Melinda ~ I remember when Ann Curry was a newbie reporter at KGW TV in Portland years ago .... now she's grown into a respected TV journalist and anchor.  Nice that she's returning to her roots for the commencement address!
