First lady Michelle Obama will be the featured graduation speaker at two, and probably three commencement ceremonies this spring. Two of the schools are in D.C.
One is Anacostia Senior High School, a public school in the District, where the first lady will address graduates on June 11. Ms. Obama visited the campus last year as part of her mentoring program for young women.
And if students at The George Washington University complete 100,000 hours of community service before their May 16 graduation, Ms. Obama will speak at that commencement as well. The first lady issued the service challenge to the student body at the beginning of the school year.
Ms. Obama also has agreed to speak to graduates at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff on May 8. The White House says the university was the only state-supported institution of higher education for African-Americans when it opened more than 130 years ago.
