President Barack Obama was in Chicago Tuesday, meeting with student participants in the One Summer Chicago program and thanking community members for their support at an Obama Foundation meeting.
Obama attended a meeting at Obama Foundation headquarters in Hyde Park on the city’s South Side. Even as the former president, he can somehow still sip into a South Side room momentarily unnoticed.
The article goes on to report the following:
“Hello everybody, don’t get up. Sit down, everybody,” he told the room when they noticed him.
The former president is attempting to create a presidential complex unlike any ever built.
“How do we give back, how do we make sure this center, museum, is a tribute to not us but to all the people who have made this so special,” Obama said.
The room was filled with a hand-picked group of 37 students from around the world convening in Chicago as part of the inaugural Obama Foundation Scholars program.
“The ability for us to fill this magnificent part of the city up with people and life and activity is something I’m hoping generations of Chicagoans are going to enjoy for years to come,” Obama said.
Yesterday I met with high school students on Chicago’s Southwest side who spent the summer learning to code some pretty cool apps. Michelle and I are proud to support programs that invest in local youth and we’re proud of these young people. pic.twitter.com/dQnDgswCj5
