    Pres Obama could be your HS Commencement Speaker

    aelmer

      March 11 is the deadline!

       

      Public high schools are invited to demonstrate "how their school best prepares them for college and a career, helping America win the future by out-educating our competitors and achieving President Obama’s goal of having the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by 2020."

       

      The winning school will host President Obama as their 2011 commencement speaker.

       

      Kalamazoo Central High was last year's winner - you can see their video about it here.

      "The process of competing was great. Our students came together to show the country what Kalamazoo Central and Kalamazoo Public Schools are all about. The pride in their hard work, and the validation of their efforts, could catapult these students to new heights as they move into and beyond their college years. President Barack Obama's visit lifted our entire community on that evening, and we have yet to lose that altitude.”

       

      (Intel is in no way involved - we just would LOVE to see one of you win)
