State of the Union: who was there January 26, 2011

Some notable Catholics were special guests, according to CNS:

Washington Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl was among the guests of House Speaker John Boehner, along with an assortment of students and teachers representing the archdiocese’s Consortium of Catholic Academies, other supporters of school choice and the Heritage Foundation.

In first lady Michelle Obama’s box were several Catholics who recently have made the news. They included Roxanna and John Green, and their son, Dallas. The family was among guests from Tucson, Ariz., with a connection to the Jan. 8 shootings that left 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green dead, along with five other people and 13 who were wounded. Also seated with the first lady were Daniel Hernandez, the intern who helped save his boss, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and Dr. Peter Rhee, one of Giffords’ physicians from Tucson’s University Medical Center.

Another guest of the first lady was Mikayla Nelson, a freshman at Central Catholic High in Billings, Mont., who led her team to a first-place finish at the National Science Bowl with the design of their solar car.
