President Barack Obama will pay a visit to the Lake Norman area on Thursday, stopping at Mooresville Middle School during his planned trip to Charlotte Thursday.
Obama will learn about the school’s cutting edge curriculum, which integrates technology into the learning process, according to The White House.
He is also expected to make a speech about middle class jobs during the visit.
In an advisory, the White House said the president will fly into Charlotte and travel to Mooresville as part of his “Middle Class Jobs & Opportunity Tour.” The tour follows Obama’s State of the Union address, in which he said he believes the middle class ‘is the engine of economic growth.” The White House said:
To reignite that engine, there are three areas we need to invest in: 1) Jobs, 2) Skills and 3) Opportunity. We need to build on the progress we’ve made over the last four years, and that means investing in things that are already creating good-paying, stable jobs that can support a middle class family.
Mooresville Graded School District has received national attention in recent years for its use of technology and other innovations. In February, Superintendent Mark Edwards was named Superintendent of the Year by the National Association of School Administrators.
