While her job in the White House may be completed, Former first lady Michelle Obama stopped by a Washington high school to give those kids a surprise they will never forget.
Mrs. Obama is still making sure to go out in the D.C. community to speak with children about their post-high school education, and that is exactly what she did in a private meeting with about 14 high school students.
The students a Ballou STAY High School in southeast Washington were expecting the new chancellor of D.C. public schools, Antwan Wilson, but instead, were greeted by Mrs. Obama.
During her time as the first lady, Mrs.Obama worked hard with an initiative that encourages students to continue their academic careers as they have modeled though their own children, Sasha who is completing high school, and Malia, who is heading to Harvard next Fall.
While this occasion was definitely a surprise to the students at this high school, you never know where the former first lady could be popping up next.
But that’s not all she has up her sleeves. It was announced late yesterday that both Mr. and Mrs. Obama would each be getting their own book deal.
The former first couple signed a deal with Penguin Random House after an auction to secure the deal for the two separate books reached well over $60 million.
This is the highest total that has been offered for a presidential memoir. According to the Huffington Post, Bill Clinton’s 2005 autobiography capped at $15 million, while George W Bush’s 2010 memoir was capped at an estimated $10 million.
In true Obama fashion, the couple has decided that they will donate the book advances to charity, which includes the Obama foundation.
While there is still no title for the book, it is set to be released sometime next year.
