Bridgeport Picked as Finalists to Host President 5/2/2011
Chances of Bridgeport High School’s hosting of President Obama as this year’s commencement speaker took a giant leap forward with the revealing of on-line voting results in the Race to the Top competition. Whitehouse Domestic Policy Director Melody Barnes announced that Bridgeport is one of the top three finalists.

Over the past week, nearly 100,000 people from across the country submitted almost 300,000 votes on videos that were produced by the six original semifinalist schools.

The winning school will host President Obama as their 2011 commencement speaker. The President will select the winner from the three finalists later this week. The official announcement is expected shortly thereafter from the Whitehouse.
