McGavock High School Prepares for Presidential Visit
By Jason Lamb
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After President Barack Obama delivers his state of the union address Tuesday night, he plans on making stops in four cities across the country, including Nashville on Thursday.
While there aren't many details about the speech he's set to deliver yet, he will be speaking at McGavock High School about job creation and job growth.
McGavock High is one of several Metro schools that has adopted a career academy model in recent years, integrating real-world business partners into school curriculums.
Robbin Wall, the principal at McGavock, said he's glad to see the President pick his school to deliver his speech.
"I'm going to hope that it's because of the successes we've had with our students and programs at McGavock, that this was the reason we were chosen," Wall said.
Obama is also headed to Glenarden, Md.; Pittsburgh; and Milwaukee as part of the tour.
