President Obama wows the crowd at Kalamazoo Central graduation
Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE
The yearbook staff, and all the rest of the students, at Kalamazoo Central High School got to experience one memorable graduation ceremony this week when President Obama spoke at the school’s festivities – an honor the school earned for winning the White House’s Race To The Top High School Commencement Challenge in May.
The ceremony was held on the campus of Western Michigan University, and included an appearance by NBC’s “Today” show host Matt Lauer.
To the graduating seniors, President Obama stressed the need for hard work, perseverance and embracing something “bigger than yourself.” He also stayed for the entire 2-hour event, and greeted each senior with a handshake.
