Glassboro High School Student Invites President Obama to Speak at Graduation Ceremony
You gotta give Leon Purvis from Glassboro props for aiming high. The Glassboro High School senior who once asked Justin Beiber to the prom via YouTube as a ‘bro” and Olympic Gold medalist Gabby Douglas to the senior prom. Now Purvis is setting his sights on another American icon.
Leon Purvis is now inviting President Barrack Obama to speak at the Glassboro High School's graduation ceremony.
Here is an excerpt from Purvis' e-mail that he sent to me:
“In 1986 former President Mr. Ronald Reagan spoke at Glassboro High School's class of 1986 graduation ceremony. Mr. Reagan was the first president to speak at any high school graduation ceremony and the high school he wanted to speak at was Glassboro High School. Here is a video of that speech
Glassboro High School football star Corey Clement helped me out with this invitation. The video received over 1,000 views within a 24 hour period. My local news paper the South Jersey Times did a story about it." You can read ithat story in its entirety by clicking HERE.
"Here is the YouTube video of Corey and I making the plea to President Obama."
Although he was unsuccessful with both Justin Bieber and Gabby Douglas, could the third time be the charm for Leon Purvis? What do you think? Leave your comments or well wishes to Leon below.
