Our own Amy Chyao is receiving a great honor tonight as she has been invited to sit with the First Lady during the State of the Union speech:
PLANO (January 25, 2011)—Among First Lady Michelle Obama’s guests Tuesday night during the State of the Union address will be Plano East High School junior Amy Chyao, 16, and her father.
Chyao was chosen after meeting President Barack Obama at the White House Science Fair, where she presented a design for a cancer-treating photo-sensitizer.
Mr. Obama later called her an example of America’s potential in one of his speeches.
Chyao said she’s honored by the invitation.
She met then first lady Laura Bush in 2007 after she won the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
