A surprise speaker had a message for a group of Chicago girls as they graduated from eighth grade on Tuesday. Presidential candidate Barack Obama was holding an economics forum at the Illinois Institute of Technology when he learned the Young Women's Leadership Charter School was holding its graduation ceremony across the hall. He dropped in.

Obama urged the students to read this summer and decide how to make themselves the best young women they can be.
