Ellis-Stewart taking part in Obama visit

Ericka Ellis-Stewart, recently elected to chair the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board, will get a chance to meet President Obama when he visits Charlotte tomorrow.

Details weren't immediately available;  Ellis-Stewart is in Raleigh this afternoon meeting with a legislative education committee.  But the district confirmed that the reason a special meeting on the superintendent search was announced for Wednesday morning,  then postponed,  was that the chair was invited to be part of the visit.

The president is scheduled to fly into the Charlotte airport and make a quick visit to the Freightliner truck plant in nearby Mount Holly.
