First Lady Michelle Obama is launching "Reach Higher" today in San Antonio, highlighting the significance of pursuing and completing some form of higher education and the importance of students doing their part to answer the President’s ‘North Star’ Education Goal that by the year 2020, America once again has the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.

During her remarks, Mrs. Obama asked all the students in attendance to take this pledge:

“I believe in myself and my future.
I commit to enroll in college.
I commit to persevere when I get there.
I commit to graduate.
And no matter what, I commit to always reach higher – for myself, for my family, and for my community.”
