Obama to speak at Joplin High School graduation
The commencement is scheduled to take place 7 p.m. Monday, May 21, at the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center on the campus of Missouri Southern State University.
The ceremony will take place just one day before the one-year anniversary of the May 22 tornado that brought Joplin into the nation's spotlight.
The acccompanying photo was taken during the president's visit to Joplin on Sunday, May 29, one week after the tornado.
