Presidential Fun Facts: The High School Edition
Barack Obama: Punahou School
President Obama attended Punahou School—a college preperatory school—in Honolulu, Hawaii from fifth grade up until his graduation in 1979.
We've all had terrible summer jobs during our teenage years, but Obama's came with an unexpected casualty. During high school, Obama worked at a Baskin Robbins and as a result he says he now hates ice cream! How sad.
And proving he wasn't always a superhero, while Barack did play basketball for his state championship high school basketball team, he spent most of his time on the bench. It's ok, Barack—you're the President now, so you win!
