Leesville Road grads celebrate with Bill Clinton

Posted June 11, 2009

Some Leesville Road High School seniors got a surprise along with their dinner Wednesday at Sullivan's Steakhouse.

Bill Clinton, in town for a memorial to honor John Hope Franklin, was having dinner and graciously posed for photos with the students.

Diners flocked to have their photo taken with the former president, Sullivan's general manager said.

Clinton paid the bill for the four people in his party, but, in the confusion, left his credit card at the restaurant, the manager said. He sent members of his Secret Service detail to retrieve it.
