So, my school is:
Martin Luther King Magnet High School for the Health Sciences and Engineering at Historic Pearl High School.
We are the #1 high school in the state of Tennessee, top 100 in the US, according to the US World News. We graduate 100% (some people drop out, so they don't count).
We opened a new wellness center with help from the YMCA, and a wellness group in Nashville. Our SGA threw out junk vending machines, then replaced them with healthy food ones. (we threw out the SGA for that). We have a Green Club that manages the school's recycling program, and manages a community garden across the street.
All this led to a counselor e-mailing the White House and asking if Michelle Obama could give the Class of 2013 commencement address. Then asking U.S. House of Representatives member Jim Cooper to send a letter on our behalf to the First Lady. He obliged. On Monday, our head principal found out and told a couple of teachers. It was soon leaked to the entire upper-class.
Today, the world and the young ones at the school found all of this out,along with a video from the First Lady herself.Video
I am a junior, unfortunately, but if I can get into the nationally renowned Wind Ensemble of MLK, I will be able to play for her on graduation day and have a free ticket automatically.
Let's go MLK Royals!
