First Lady Michelle Obama Scrapping Plans to Deliver a High School Graduation Speech in Topeka, KS After 1,750 Signed Protest Petition


Michelle Obama scraps graduation speech after 1000′s sign protest petition … Its not about you!

More than 1750 people signed a protest petition against First Lady Michelle Obama speaking at a high school graduation in Topeka, Kansas. Instead she will make a speech a day before graduation on Senior Recognition Day as part of a commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling. Granted, some probably signed the petition because they could care less what Michelle Obama has to tell their graduating teens; however, the major did so as the Topeka Capital Journal reports, graduating seniors from Topeka Unified School District 501 would have only been allotted up to six tickets apiece for friends and relatives to attend. The general angst from parents and students alike, the day that should center on the graduating students and their loved ones, not Michelle Obama’s speech and the limited seating due to having a first lady speak and secret service concerns.

Graduating students take back their day from Queen Obama

First lady Michelle Obama is scrapping her plans to deliver a graduation speech for high school seniors in Topeka, Kan., after hundreds signed a petition in protest.

Instead of delivering a graduation speech, Obama will speak before the school district the day before graduation, and will deliver remarks at a “Senior Recognition Day.”

More than 1,750 people had signed a petition protesting the first lady’s appearance at the graduation ceremony, angered that security concerns would limit the number of friends and family who could attend.

According to the Topeka Capital-Journal, students would have only been allotted six tickets apiece had the first lady maintained her original plans.
