Obama Honors NYC Inner City School Student at State of the Union Address

 

I won’t comment on the State of the Union address a couple of days ago except for this shining moment…this student was recognized for his achievement of coming to this country without knowing a word of English and now he is going to college thanks to his own drive and the efforts of a little public school known as the Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School (WHEELS)! What a great way to begin 2014 knowing that there are schools out there like this one and students out there who are making history!
