This week, President Obama traveled to Krun, Germany, a small village in the Bavarian Alps to meet with the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7).

During its 41st annual summit, the G7 made progress on a number of issues, including the need to move away from fossil fuels, the need to integrate climate risks into development assistance, the desire to forge new trade partnerships, shared support for Ukraine, and the global mission to fight terrorism.

The First Lady delivered her final commencement address of the season at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Preparatory High School (King College Prep) in Chicago, IL. In addition to this commencement, this spring Mrs. Obama celebrated the graduates at Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, AL, and Oberlin College in Oberlin, OH as a way to shine a spotlight on students who have gone above and beyond to reach higher, and help others do the same.
