Long before Hillary Clinton delighted (and upset) many by becoming the first female presumptive presidential nominee of a major political party, 21-year-old Hillary Rodham was impressing her classmates and professors. When it came time for the​ commencement speech during the 1969 Wellesley College graduation ceremony, the well-educated young women did not suffer through a mundane speech from some old fogey. The person addressing the graduates was none other than their own classmate, Hillary.

Great to be back in Brooklyn tonight. #DemDebate

Hillary was the first student to ever have the honor of giving the commencement address at the women's college, clips of which Wellesley is now releasing online. She did a decent job, to say the least. Listen/watch to this snippet of the speech from Wellesley if only to hear and see how Hillary has changed since becoming a a famous figure.

Clinton could just copy and paste some of this speech for re-use today.
