“She was the last student to graduate from her one-room schoolhouse. She’s an eighth grade. I gave the commencement speech to her graduating class, which was…her,” Jenny explained.

She added that she wasn’t even requested by the student, who wanted Michelle Obama or Oprah to come!

Jenny continued, “She told the Times she didn’t really know who I was!”

She added that it thankfully all went really well, saying, “She was really cool and she’s wonderful and the main fact is that she live on an island and goes to school by herself and still has more friends than I did as a teenager!”
