Dunwoody High School Students are petitioning Alumni Ryan Seacrest via Twitter to speak at the 2012 Graduation Ceremony. Could it Happen?

Ryan Seacrest has called Dunwoody, GA home for many years and I'm sure he still feels fondly of his time as the Voice of Dunwoody High School where he honed his skills before moving on to the radio.  Ryan is now an international, multimedia, mega star while earning the title as the Hardest Working Man in Hollywood but that being said, I am told that he is as grounded and down to earth as they come.  Ryan has used his fame and fortune to enhance the quality of life for seriously ill and injured children through the Ryan Seacrest Foundation where he installs broadcast media centers, named THE VOICE℠ , within pediatric hospitals for patients to explore the creative realms of radio, television and new media.

Last year a few Dunwoody High School students (pictured above) had the trip of a lifetime when they were flown out to Hollywood all expenses paid by Seacrest to attend a taping of American Idol.  This year the students at Dunwoody High would like to repay the honor and they have started a Twitter campaign to bring @RyanSeacrest back to Dunwoody to speak at the graduation ceremony in 2012.  Tweet after retweet the students campaign is gaining momentum with most using the hashtag #dunwoodyneedsryanseacrest

As an all around model of a down to earth, local boy who has done well for both himself and his surrounding community, I was honored to join in the students campaign and informed Ryan that a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is nothing as compared to having your entire hometown community of family and friends honoring him where he was raised and allowed to polish his craft before becoming a star.

Take a look at the videos below and I believe you may agree with me that someday Mr. Seacrest will be presented with the "Key to the City of Dunwoody" or maybe the true kudos go to his parents Connie and Gary for keeping him so grounded?  Either way, the City of Dunwoody Georgia is proud to be associated with the Seacrest family and all they do.
