Shark Tank star Daymond John is joining Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Nick Cannon, Rebel Wilson and Zendaya in former first lady Michelle Obama’s college initiative at Temple University on May 2. About 8,000 students are expected to attend during what is National Signing Day.
The day celebrates high school seniors who are choosing to pursue higher education at a professional training program, a community college, a four-year college or university, or the military. This will be the second time that Daymond John has joined with the Obamas and their specific initiatives. He was named a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship in 2016 where he traveled with the then President to Kenya and Cuba and he was very involved in their “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.
