Video: Kalamazoo Kid Nods Off As Obama Speaks

While we wait for the news to come in from today's primaries, here's some fun.

One member of the student choir at Kalamazoo (Mich.) Central High yesterday just couldn't keep his eyes open as President Barack Obama delivered the commencement address. And local WOOD-TV's camera couldn't miss the young man nodding off, since he was seated almost directly behind the president:


As The Two-Way reported last month, Kalamazoo Central won the Race to the Top High School Commencement Challenge contest that awarded a presidential visit to the school in honor of its "innovative and effective approaches to teaching, learning and preparing students to graduate ready for college and a career."
