HARTFORD — After almost a year of trying to get an interview with President Barack Obama, an elementary school student got his chance.
On Thursday, the White House granted Damon Weaver’s long-standing request and notified reporters around 7 p.m. that Weaver, who is going into sixth grade, finally landed an interview with Obama.
The news nugget: Obama told Weaver he’ll deliver a back-to-school address on September 8.
“I’m going to be making a big speech to young people all across the country about the importance of education, the importance of staying in school, how we want to improve our education system, and why it’s so important for the country. And so I hope everybody tunes in,” Obama told Weaver.
