North Carolina, Duke Honored at White House
The 2013 NCAA champion Duke men's and North Carolina women's lacrosse teams are among the many at the White House today to be honored by President Obama - they've been on their tours and the President is about to speak - video available below via WhiteHouse.gov
The Presidents remarks (which just concluded at about 5:07 p.m. in case you missed them) were just the culmination of the day for the guests, who got to check out the White House and, in some cases, met and shake hands with the President before they headed out for the official remarks.
Here's a sampling of the social media we saw from those in attendance:
