Adnan Barqawi, outgoing Commander of the Corps of Cadets at Virginia Tech, delivered a stellar speech to the delegates at Saturday’s Republican Party of Virginia Convention. Several times throughout the speech, delegates were drawn to their feet in standing ovations for Barqawi, who was born and raised in Kuwait, and recently became an American on April 17, 2009. Throughout his speech, Barqawi spoke that America stood for freedom and provided him many opportunities that were not available to him in Kuwait. He will soon join Teach for America as an elementary school teacher in the Mississippi Delta.
