Bridgeport On ‘Pins And Needles’ For President’s Decision
Bridgeport High School in Central Washington will have to wait a few more days to find out if President Barack Obama will deliver the commencement speech at their school.
Bridgeport expected to hear the answer on Friday, but Superintendent Scott Sattler said that because of how busy The White House has been following the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the President has not had ample time to decide on a school.
Sattler says he and the students will be on pins and needles all weekend as they await word from Washington D.C.
The other schools in the running are in Memphis and San Diego, though Bridgeport is the smallest of the three with just 200 students.
“If we can make the President of the United States come to this small area than we can do anything,” Norma Camacho, a senior who helped make the video for the president, said.
They should hear if President Obama selected their school between 10am and 1pm Monday.
