President Barack Obama
Barack graduated from Columbia University in 1983 and later went on to receive his law degree from Harvard Law in 1991. In 1996 Barack decided to enter the world of politics. He ran for the Illinois State Senate and won. He served on the state senate until 2004 when he was elected to the United States Senate. After three years of serving on the U.S Senate, Obama entered the 2008 presidential election. He had gained national recognition for being an excellent speaker and was very popular. He was inaugurated on January 20, 2009 after defeating John McCain in the general election.
Barack Obama’s Presidency
Both the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars were currently ongoing when Obama became president. Obama has withdrawn most U.S. Troops but fighting continues in both countries. Osama bin Laden was finally captured and killed on May 11, 2011.
Obama pushed for higher taxes, a larger federal government, and stimulus plans to get the economy moving. The stock market reached historic highs and the unemployment rate fell
Obama pushed for health care reform and signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law in 2010. This law is intended to help poor people to be able to afford health insurance.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY/STUDENT COUNCIL
As winter continues, your Student Council is once again geared up to collect gently used/new coats and canned/packaged food for the less fortunate men, women and children in our community. We hope that you participate in our food and coat drive by donating to our cause. The collection boxes are in the foyer near the main office. With your help, we can ease dozens of Worcester families with the burden that comes with current cold season.
Congratulations to the boys’ basketball team for their win at Abby Kelley last night. Next game is tomorrow at Bay Path.
