Gov. Beshear endorses the President Project, asks president to come to Manual

A video featuring Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear endorsing the President Project is sweeping across students’ Facebook newsfeeds after it was released Thursday on the President Project’s Youtube channel.

In the video, Gov. Beshear implored the president to give the 2012 graduation commencement address, which has been the President Project’s main goal since its formation in late September. Gov. Beshear’s endorsement represents the highest support for the initiative yet. Other endorsements include those from Congressman John Yarmuth, the Kentucky House of Representatives, Mayor Greg Fischer and Superintendent Donna Hargens.
