(Newser) – Barack Obama yesterday presented Kalamazoo Central High School's class of 2010 with their reward for winning his "Race to the Top" video competition: a commencement address from him. Thousands of students submitted inspiring videos about their schools; you can see Kalamazoo's over at the Huffington Post. Or cut to the chase and catch this soon-to-be-classic video above, in which a kid demonstrates his enthusiasm for Obama's historic visit by struggling to stay awake. Enjoy.
