Egger charged the Class of 2010 to not accept the world as they have inherited it and to "do good and make money."

"You are the forefront of America's most diverse generation ever - 60 million strong. Your generation has been raised doing community service," Egger said. "Not since World War II has a generation answered the call to service in the numbers as this generation. The stakes for our country have never been higher."

"Some would call you ‘Generation Next.' I must disagree with that. From where I stand, you are ‘Generation Now.' This country needs you now. This world needs you now. Behind you are millions of younger peers who are looking to you to break new ground," Egger said.
