Watch Obama Joplin Address Live
JOPLIN - Watch President Barack Obama give the Joplin High School commencement speech Monday here. The speech is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. and last about one hour.
The president's Barack Obama remarks will focus on graduating seniors whose town was devastated by deadly tornadoes. Obama's remarks in Joplin fall on the eve of the one-year anniversary of the tornado that killed 161 people. Joplin High School was destroyed in the tornado and the graduating class spent their senior year taking classes in a converted shopping mall.
The president visited the Joplin last year in the days after the tornado struck to tour the devastation and meet with residents.
Obama will arrive in Joplin on Monday evening after wrapping up four days of international summits, including the NATO conference in Chicago.
