No OBAMA at Mast Academy commencement

Looks like MAST Academy will just have to be happy with its 100 percent graduation rate.

President Barack Obama will not be delivering this year's graduation speech, the White House announced Friday.

The Virginia Key school was effectively voted off the high school island by America during a competition to determine what school would have the graduation speaker of a lifetime for its seniors.

MAST was among six schools nationwide that made the first cut and Obama asked online voters to narrow that number down to three. Unfortunately, MAST's video extolling the virtues of a great education just minutes from the beach didn't sway the 170,000 voters who rated the videos.
