San Fernando Valley School Named After Michelle Obama

PANORAMA CITY (CBSLA.com) — School board members have approved a plan to rename a San Fernando Valley elementary school after First Lady Michelle Obama.

Los Angeles Unified board members voted unanimously Tuesday to name Valley Region Elementary School No. 13 after Mrs. Obama.

The campus, which was opened last August to relieve overcrowding at nearby elementary schools, focuses on healthy eating for students, a cause championed by Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign.

The First Lady was in Germany on Wednesday as President Obama meets with Prime Minister Angela Merkel and other leaders.
