New classes, new classmates, old and new friends and a whole new wardrobe, the students are looking forward to many things as they are preparing to head back to the school this fall.
Heading back to the school turned into a huge surprise for one of a group of McKinley Tech High’s students at D.C. The students were highly surprised after a surprise visit of former President Barack Obama.
The ex-President casually had a visit into a classroom where one group of students of McKinley Tech High were present with Antwan Wilson, D.C. Schools Chancellor. The surprise visit of Obama was recorded on video clip which was posted to former President’s Instagram account.
Obama captioned the visit video as “These young people that I met at McKinley Tech today are the reason I’m hopeful about the future.”
Former U.S. President Brack Obama tweeted, “Proud of these McKinley Tech students—inspiring young minds that make me hopeful about our future.”

Obama asked the students, “Hey, how’s it going everybody?”
He said, “The chancellor told me you guys were meeting, so I thought I’d stop by. You don’t mind me crashing, right?”
The students sat in a circle and gasped to see former President, Obama also sat with the students and told the students that wherever he traveled across the world he made a point of meeting with youth.
Obama said, “One of the things that I did throughout my presidency was I’d meet with groups of young people everywhere I went, whether it was here in the United States, or traveling overseas just to kind of hear from them, find out what they’re interested in.”
“I do believe that most of the problems that we have are going to be solved by you,” Obama told the students.
