Obama to visit Mooresville school for NC stop

READ MORE:

MOORESVILLE, NC (AP) - President Obama's trip to North Carolina has him scheduled to visit a middle school north of Charlotte.

The White House released more details Monday about the president's trip to the Charlotte area Thursday afternoon. The Obama administration says the president will visit Mooresville Middle School to make remarks and see what it calls the school's cutting-edge curriculum that promotes digital learning.

The school is part of the Mooresville Graded School District, where Mark Edwards was named superintendent of the year by the American Association of School Administrators.

The White House announced last week that Obama would make the Charlotte area the latest stop of his "Middle-Class Jobs and Opportunity Tour." He's already made tour stops in Austin, Tex., and Baltimore.
