Rosa RiosUnited States Treasurer, Rosie Rios, delivered the main address at Marygrove's 2010 commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 15 to nearly 800 people.

“We’re honored that Ms. Rios delivered the commencement address to our 2010 graduating class,” said Marygrove President David Fike. “As a key federal official with broad experience in economic development issues, I know her message to graduates, their friends and family will remembered.”

Rios, an engaging speaker, spoke candidly about her own experiences growing up as a one of nine children raised by a single mother. She thanked her mother for instilling in all her siblings, the importance of getting a college education: "we all graduated from college," said Rios. She also reflected on a variety of statistics about Millennials, the generation of people born between 1980 and 2000, citing their comfort with communicating through technology as a strength, but encouraging them not to overlook the importance of human-to-human contact. Rios also emphasized the importance of going on to graduate school while students are still young and their minds still flexible. She praised Marygrove's leadership role in being involved in community and helping to teach its students the value of civic and community involvement, and reminded graduates that voting should not be something they take for granted. "Every vote matters," she said.

Rios became Treasurer of the United States in August 2009. In that position she advises the Secretary of the Treasury on monetary matters and serves as a senior advisor and representative of the Treasury on behalf of the Secretary in the areas of community development and public engagement.
