President Obama wrote a handwritten tribute to the Gettysburg Address:
The White House

Earlier this week, Dr. Jill Biden and Labor Secretary Tom Perez visited Cleveland Community College in North Carolina and Broward College in Florida as part of their “Community College to Career” tour designed to highlight innovative workforce training partnerships.

Dr. Biden and Secretary Perez met with students, toured innovative labs and classrooms, and learned more about the Labor Department’s Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grants. These unprecedented investments are helping leverage strong partnerships with local employers to transform community colleges into engines of economic growth across the country.

On Wednesday, the President awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to 16 recipients. These included: Oprah Winfrey, Gloria Steinem, Ernie Banks, Ben Bradlee, Bill Clinton, Daniel Inouye (posthumous), Daniel Kahneman, Richard Lugar, Loretta Lynn, Mario Molina, Sally Ride (posthumous), Bayard Rustin (posthumous,) Arturo Sandoval, Dean Smith, Cordy Tindell Vivian and Patricia Weld.
