    Mr. President Barack Obama Graduation?

    Hey my name is Leon Purvis from Glassboro New Jersey. I am a senior this year attending Glassboro High School. You may know me as the guy that asked pop star Justin Bieber to junior prom via YouTube as a "bro" and Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas to senior prom. Well now it was my idea for Glassboro High School's class of 2013 to invite Mr. President Barack Obama to speak at our graduation ceremony. In 1986 former president Mr. Ronald Reagan spoke at Glassboro High School's class of 1986 graduation ceremony. Mr. Reagan was the first president to speak at any high school graduation ceremony and the high school he want to speak at was Glassboro High School. Here is a video of that speech http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JzdLDY0W7I Glassboro High School football star Corey Clement helped me out with this invitation. My local news paper the South Jersey Times did a story about it http://www.nj.com/south/index.ssf/2013/02/glassboro_teen_who_asked_biebe.html Also I had a radio interview on NJ 101.5 in the interview I asked if Mr. Governor Chris Christie can help with the plea on getting Mr. President Barack Obama to speak at Glassboro High School's class of 2013 graduation ceremony. http://nj1015.com/glassboro-high-school-student-invites-president-obama-to-speak-at-graduation-ceremony/ Here is the YouTube video of Corey and I making the plea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzPH76lvCrE Please let me know if you would like to do a story or not thanks :)
