052112_ Joplin Airport President Obama arrives to greet crowd
President Obama greeted supporters May 21 at the Joplin Airport on his way to keynote the Joplin High School's graduation ceremonies held at Missouri Southern State University's Leggett and Platt Athletic Center. His visit was in honor of the first anniversary of the May 22, 2011, tornado in Joplin, the second deadliest tornado in the history of the United States. Obama visited Joplin on Memorial Day last year, less than two weeks after the EF-5 tornado ripped through the city.
