Senior class president Michael Perry (12), Parker Bowling (12), and Matthew Garofalo (12) appeared on WHAS-11’s “Great Day Live!” to spread the word about The President Project. Spearheaded by the three students, the project’s year-long goal is to secure President Obama as the commencement speaker for the class of 2012.
During the WHAS-11 interview, the students discussed how they came up with the idea, the work involved in asking the president to give the commencement, surging student interest, and the recently released “We Are Manual: An Invitation to President Obama” video.
“I’ve watched Terry Miner and Rachel Platt since I was little,” Bowling said. “It was a little surreal being in the studio with them and kind of put The President Project in perspective of how much of a reach we’ll have on the community, not just Manual but on Louisville.”
