Mrs. Obama Celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Schoolchildren

"In pre-observance of the Cinco de Mayo holiday, first lady Michelle Obama on Monday visited the Latin American Montessori Bilingual Public Charter School."
"So as First Lady I really want to make sure that people feel connected. And one way that we're doing that with kids in D.C. -- and this is more for the older kids -- is that we're developing this summer at the White House a program called D.C. Scholars, where we're inviting teens from Washington, D.C. -- and it's exclusive to the teens who live in the area -- to come and be interns at the White House.
For the first time -- and this hasn't been done -- students from the D.C. public school system will have the opportunity to be interns at the White House. "source.
