President Barack Obama will speak at 1 p.m. today in Philadelphia for his second annual “Back-to-School Speech.”
The invitation-only event will be held at Julia R. Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School, at 1699 Spring Garden St., and will be streamed live on WhiteHouse.gov and broadcast on CNN, according to a White House press release.
In last year’s address — given at an Arlington, Va., high school — Obama called on students to discover their talents and passions.
“Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is,” he said last year.
Obama will be back in Philadelphia next Monday for a campaign fundraiser for Democratic Senate candidate Joe Sestak.Comments powered by Disqus
