SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- "I am honored to introduce, the 44th President of the United States, President Barack Obama."
He energetically jumped onto the stage Thursday evening in front of the packed gym at Henninger High School. President Obama talked about making education affordable, featuring programs like Say Yes for Education in Syracuse.
"These are programs helping Syracuse kids get ready for college. Making sure that they can afford to go. This is a community effort. You have declared that no child in the City of Syracuse should miss out on a college education because they can't pay for it. We are hoping more cities follow you're example. What you're doing is critical not just to Syracuse's future but America's future," Obama said.
