AUSTIN -- As Central Texas prepares for President Obama's visit to Manor this Thursday, the White House released more information about his schedule.

Members of the president's advance security team are already hovering over Central Texas. Viewer Doug Beck snapped the picture on this story of a marine helicopter over Manor.

After landing at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the president will make his way to Manor New Tech High School the afternoon of May 9. The White House Press Office says "school like this are where students are learning the real-world skills they need to fill jobs that are available right now."

After visiting the campus President Obama will stop by Applied Materials on 290 where he'll sit down and talk with workers. It's all part of the president's "middle class jobs & opportunity tour," the first of a series of day trips focusing on jobs and the economy.

The White House says Obama will travel every few weeks emphasizing his State of the Union proposals.

KVUE News and KVUE.com will have live coverage of the president's visit on Thursday starting on KVUE Daybreak.
