This photo of Jeremy Bird ’00 recently appeared in a major US newspaper – he’s pondering the challenges of the upcoming mid-term elections.

I remember talking to him several years ago, when he was with Wake-up Walmart, and he hinted he would probably find himself with some role in the then-upcoming elections.

"Some role" I guess.  Today Jeremy finds himself as President Obama’s deputy director of Organizing for America, a effort which is credited with helping to garner support for the recentl-passed healthcare bill.

Regardless of one’s politics, one just has to be proud of Jeremy and all his hard work.  Jeremy Bird – a difference maker.
