Shakira Appointed on Obama’s Advisory Commission for Hispanic Educational Excellence

Last night, Shakira was officially appointed to a key administrative post on President Barack Obama’s Advisory Commission for Hispanic Educational Excellence.

Shakira Quote:

“This is a tremendous honor for me.  I am humbled that my philanthropic experience could be helpful or that my voice can be used to amplify the message and work of the President and this Commission. As I have seen in my own Foundation work, the only road out of poverty is education. For a host of reasons, Latino young people in this country disproportionately drop out of school and far too few finish college.  Closing this gap will not only determine the economic future and competitiveness of this nation, but can serve as a model for the world. I am grateful to have an opportunity to support such important work.”
