Michelle Obama to visit Chicago

By Yasmine Laasraoui

First Lady and Hyde Park resident Michelle Obama will be joining Mayor Rahm Emanuel in Chicago, Thursday, July 18, to support a local program for underserved high school students, Urban Alliance.

The First Lady and the Mayor will bring attention to the program, which provides students from low-income families with yearlong employment and internships.

The United States Secret Service’s public affairs office was unable to comment on any road closures or added security measures in the Chicago area. Chicago Police News Affairs stated they could “disclose that information for security reasons.”
