JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Jackson State University’s spring graduates will be among the last group of graduates to hear from First Lady Michelle Obama, who has included the Mississippi college as part of her Reach Higher initiative.

Obama has delivered remarks on a historically black university campus each year since she has served as first lady. She will deliver the commencement address at Jackson State on Saturday, April 23 before more than 1,000 graduates, friends, family and members of the university community.

In addition to Jackson State, Obama will mark her final commencement addresses with visits May 26 to Santa Fe Indian School in Santa Fe, New Mexico and June 3 to City College of New York in New York.
