In a speech about expanding college opportunity, President Obama praises a WHEELS student!

WHEELS is the Washington Heights Expeditionary School in NYC. It is a fabulous school with an amazing principal, amazingly dedicated teachers, and a student body who at the end of every senior year has 100% of the students apply for college! It is astounding and I wish everyone could speak with Brett (the principal) and learn what they are doing so that all students across the country could have the same experience!

The white haired guy taping the president’s speech in the audience (in this video) is Brett and the kid sitting next to him is Estiven Rodriguez… take a look:

Here’s the address if the link doesn’t work:
