RICHMOND, KY - Michelle Obama's commencement speaking schedule is taking her to Kentucky, Tennessee, and Maryland.
 
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 high school seniors at the Martin Luther King Jr. Academic Magnet School 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.
