WASHINGTON (AP) -- Michelle Obama's commencement speaking schedule is taking her to Kentucky, Maryland and Tennessee.
The White House announced Thursday that Mrs. Obama will address graduates at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond on May 11 and at Bowie State University in Bowie, Md., on May 17. She's also speaking to graduating seniors at the Martin Luther King Academic Magnet High School for Health Sciences and Engineering in Nashville, Tenn., on May 18.
Eastern Kentucky was chosen for its commitment to veterans' education. The MLK magnet school recently opened a community supported wellness center and students tend to a community garden. Veterans and health and wellness are causes of the first lady.
The magnet school has also been recognized for its curriculum and high graduation rate.
Bowie State is a historically black college.
