A quartet of current Project STEP students and alumni recently performed for a State Dinner with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, which honored the Prime Minister of Singapore. This was our second time at the White House since becoming one of the recipients of the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards in 2014. We are beyond thrilled to share this photograph with our extended Project STEP family, and to our students, Njioma, Tristan, Lev and Jordan – you all played beautifully and made us so proud. Pictured from left: Project STEP alumnus Lev, Jodie McMenamin, Gabriella Sanna, President Barack Obama, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, First Lady Michelle Obama, Mrs. Lee Hsien Loong, STEP alumni Jordan and Tristan, and Project STEP student Njioma in the Blue Room of the White House. Official White House Photo by Chuck Kennedy.
