A Chance Meeting

A gifted saxophone player, Clinton was also a star in the classroom. In high school, he visited the White House as a delegate representing Boys Nation, a civics program run by the American Legion, where he met President John F. Kennedy in the White House Rose Garden. The encounter influenced him to pursue a career in politics.
