Inspired by Kendall's story, President Clinton wanted to do something special. It was a surprise that took the Secret Service to pull off!
Just a few hours before taping The Oprah Show, President Clinton spoke during a rally at Kendall's suburban high school. The students thought he was there to honor them for their donations to cancer research and Locks for Love—until he called Kendall on stage.
"I'm going into Chicago to talk more about giving with a friend of mine who wants to meet you, Kendall," he says. "So [your principal] has agreed to give you a little time off today so you can you can go with me to meet Oprah Winfrey and be on her television show."
