Goldsboro school needs votes in bid for Obama talk

READ MORE:

GOLDSBORO, NC (AP) -- A Goldsboro high school is seeking votes from the public in its bid to get President Barack Obama to deliver a June commencement address.

Wayne Early Middle College High School is competing against five other schools from around the country that have been named finalists in the Race to the Top competition. Each school's video campaign was posted on the White House website Thursday. Public votes will narrow the competition to three candidates, and Obama will select a winner from among them.

Goldsboro students talk in the three-minute video about the school's focus on college. Students at Wayne Early Middle College are dually enrolled in both high school and college courses.

Voting ends April 29.

Amen

Well said John D ! The socialist is in over his head for leading a financially wounded nation out of it's economic woes and gaining respect in the foreign arena. He is propped up by the mainstream media for a job above his pay grade. He has missed the mark on everyone one of his economic projections . Only government schools would view him as a success. He has no wisdom to provide young people given his career as a community organizer , career government ( taker ) worker and a person from academia , who has a skewed view of reality.

Vote here to help the students win.

Obama speaking in Goldsboro High School

Why would the public tolerate any public high school that participates in partisan politics? This is outrageous.

Speaker

Why would a school want a Marxist to give a speech. Oh, I forgot - it's a government school.
