President Coming to McGavock High

      
Preparations are beginning for a Presidential visit to McGavock High School.

President Obama is scheduled to speak at the school Thursday at 2:55 PM.

Principal Dr. Robbin Wall says it's a sign of how things have turned around at the school in the 5 years he's been there.

Four years ago McGavock was under restructuring because of low test scores.

Today it's attracting notice for its career academies program.

It allows students to choose a career interest to study from one of four career academies.

"This is a big deal for our school.  It's a big deal for teachers and students because it validates the work they've been doing the last four years," said Dr. Wall.

Dr. Wall says the academy system has helped with everything from attendance to discipline.
