First Lady To Speak At Enterprise High Graduation
(2008-05-23)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The White House has confirmed that First Lady Laura Bush will give the commencement address at graduation ceremonies at Enterprise High School on Thursday.

Eight students were killed on March 1, 2007 when a tornado destroyed the high school and an elementary school next door. The students were crouched in a hallway that collapsed during the storm.

A message from President Bush was read at last year's Enterprise graduation ceremony and at a memorial service earlier this year on the one-year anniversary of the storm.

The high school has been holding classes at a nearby community college since the tornado. A new high school is being built in Enterprise.
