Barack and Michelle Obama are two wonderful people that keep putting smiles on the lips of people. Michelle Obama graduated from a high school in Chicago called “Whitney Young Magnet High School.
Michelle Obama’s Chicago high school alma mater is to name its new athletic complex after the former first lady.
According to reports by The Chicago Sun-Times reports Whitney Young Magnet High School in May will name the $4.3 million project after Obama. She graduated from the school in 1981.
The Principal Joyce Kenner of Whitney Young says school officials discussed the idea with Michelle Obama when she was in Chicago last November on her book tour. Michelle Obama didn’t play sports in high school, but she supported her “Let’s Move!” national fitness campaign while Barack Obama was president. It was an effort to fight childhood obesity.
The complex includes baseball and football fields, a track and bleacher seating along with lighting and scoreboards. This is a welcoming development.
