Why I left the White House to attend Kellogg

As a former campaign and White House staffer, I have seen President Barack Obama speak countless times. Thursday, though, when President Obama spoke about the economy at Kellogg, was only the second time I have been a member of the audience for the president’s speech, and it felt great.

I have worked many similar events where I usually caught half of the speech from behind the press riser, or backstage while firing off emails on my blackberry. But sitting there with no responsibilities, I was reminded of why I worked for President Obama in the first place and why I decided to get my MBA.

Thanks to everyone who tagged their photos of President Barack Obama’s speech with #MyKellogg. Rather than choosing just one picture, here are some of the favorites from the day. Keep taking pictures of your life at Kellogg and tag them with #MyKellogg, and maybe we’ll highlight your picture in the coming weeks.
