I suppose it isn't everyday that a celebrity comes to town, especially one as beloved as Oprah Winfrey. Here is what she was here for.

Yesterday was a very memorable day for the students who graduated at Skidmore College. Of course it can be an emotional day seeing you years of hard work paying off and walking the stage at Saratoga Performing Arts Center to receive your diploma. To make it all the more memorable of a day the person giving the commencement speech is none other than Oprah Winfrey.

To quote from News Channel 13,

Winfrey says she would have been here anyway. One student from her school in South Africa, the Oprah Leadership Academy for Girls, is a senior at Skidmore.

In the commencement speech given Oprah had passed on some guidance and advice to the graduating class. Saying to follow their inner voices, that is what she did. Just saying. If Oprah tells me that, I do it. More on yesterdays event at the link below.
