What will President Obama say today in Nashville?

The school may also play a role in the visit, which comes after a 15-year-old McGavock student was shot and killed at a Hermitage apartment. The person charged with shooting Kevin Barbee was his friend and classmate, 17-year-old Kaemon Robinson.

There was concern from the White House that it would be inappropriate to visit on the heels of a tragedy.

The McGavock principal says the White House even asked the school if they should cancel the president's visit out of respect for Kevin Barbee.
