Betsy DeVos was chosen to be the commencement speaker at Bethune-Cookman's graduation ceremony. Once DeVos reached the stage she was greeted with disgust as students booed her and proceeded to turn their backs on her when she spoke. Initially when DeVos was announced to be the commencement speaker the school objected and even went about gathering thousands of signatures to get her not to speak. The speech was supposed to be a part of the President's latest in outreach events to become more involved with historically black colleges and universities (Washington Post). It is safe to say that this was a fail! See the video below.
