Memphis, Tennessee (CNN) - It's graduation day for Booker T. Washington High School in Memphis, and President Barack Obama flew to town to address the students who have beaten the odds to receive their diplomas.

Congratulations to the graduates.
They represent one of the most improved schools in America.
