The Illinois Senator unexpectedly walks onstage during the graduation of four dozen eighth grade girls from the Young Women’s Leadership Charter School of Chicago following his town hall.

In short remarks, he urges the grads to read, turn off the TV and decide “how can I make myself the best young woman I can possibly be.”

While Obama shook some hands, group chanted “Change, change.”
