WATERTOWN, S.D. (AP) - President Barack Obama has landed in Watertown for a commencement address before Lake Area Technical Institute graduates.

He plans to promote his plan for free community or technical college education during his speech.

About 600 of the 720 graduates in the spring 2015 class plan to walk across stage and get their diplomas.

American flags are attached to light poles along the streets that lead to the arena where Obama will speak.

The South Dakota stop makes him only the fourth president to visit all 50 states while in office.
