Michele snubbed by 1,000 high school graduates

A high school senior has organised a petition with over 1,000 signatures against Michele Obama speaking at their high school graduation 'because it would overshadow the students' big day'
Taylor Gifford, 18, started an online petition on Thursday with over 1,200 signatures asking that Michelle Obama not speak at Topeka, Kansas, High School graduation. Obama's speech is tied to the 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education outlawing segregation in school. Some students feel that the speech would overshadow student accomplishments and others feel limited seating will be a problem
