José Andrés’ Commencement speech among “most memorable” of 2014

José Andrés’ speech at Commencement has landed on the Washington Post’s list of “most memorable” graduation addresses this year.

Many students criticized his pick as the keynote speaker, and Andrés himself even poked fun at being chosen. But the Post included his address, in which the chef talked about his pursuit of the American Dream, in a “Best of” video montage that also featured speeches by Vice President Joe Biden, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson and comedian Jay Leno.

Other nearby schools were included in the Post’s video as well, with clips from Sean Combs’ speech at Howard University and Katie Couric’s address at American University.
