Graduation season is in full swing and the students at Carson’s alma mater, Santa Monica High School, have some high hopes when it comes to selecting a speaker.

A group of seniors have launched their “Get Obama To The Greek” campaign, a video in which students explain why they deserve some face time with the President of the United States of America!

They highlight the fact that they will be the school’s 100th graduating class and also cite their headline-making protest against the Westboro Baptist Church as just some of the factors that set them apart from the average 18-year-old.

President Obama is making a fundraising visit to Los Angeles the same weekend as their graduation, Friday June 7.

The YouTube clip has already been viewed more than 1,600 times, but there’s no word on whether anyone from the White House has gotten their eyes on it yet.

  • Do you think President Obama should stop by SaMoHi’s graduation? Let us know how you feel!
