Obama to speak at Joplin High School graduation

President Obama will deliver three commencement addresses this spring — one of them in Missouri. The White House announced today that Obama will speak at the Joplin High School graduation on May 21st … the night before the anniversary of the deadly tornado that devastated that town. Several high school students lost their lives in that storm.

Obama is also delivering commencement speeches at Barnard College in New York City and the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
