Michelle Obama and Prince Harry blessed students at Hyde Park Academy on Tuesday when they paid a visit to the South Side Chicago school.

ABC News reports the two influential leaders visited the school — which resides across the street from the future Obama Presidential Center — to ensure they remain relentless in the pursuit of their dreams.

“The warm and wide-ranging conversation, lasting over an hour, covered how the Obama Presidential Center will showcase the South Side of Chicago for a global audience, the importance of young people staying inspired and hopeful, and the transformative power of students using their voices to change the world,” Mrs. Obama’s former communications director Caroline Adler Morales said in a statement obtained by ABC.

But this wasn’t the first time the Obamas have graced the school with their presence. Mrs. Obama’s other half took a visit to the school to meet some of the students who partook in the academy’s “Becoming a Man” program in 2013. Current Hyde Park Academy students are expected to play a role in the work of the Obama Foundation.
