Clinton tells WVU grads: Face change with confidence

by Jake Stump, Daily Mail - Charleston - MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Former President Bill Clinton said he experienced two "big thrills" at West Virginia University on Sunday -- earning an honorary doctorate degree and meeting Da'Sean Butler, the Mountaineer basketball forward headed to the NBA Draft.

"I cheered for you in the NCAA basketball tournament after I lost my Georgetown team," Clinton told a crowd of more than 1,200 graduates of the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences at the WVU Coliseum.

The 42nd president of the United States served as Eberly's keynote speaker at WVU's 141st commencement ceremony, marking the first time a current or former U.S. president spoke at a university commencement.

Just across the street Sunday afternoon at the Creative Arts Center, Mountaineer hoops legend, NBA Hall of Famer and Chelyan native Jerry West, dished out a keynote speech for graduates of the College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences.

Clinton, 63, peppered the Coliseum crowd with fond memories of the Mountain State, including celebrating a Mother's Day in Grafton, birthplace of the holiday.
