First Lady, Michelle Obama will deliver the commencement address on Saturday, April 23, 2016 at Jackson State University (JSU). Students have been lining up since Monday to purchase tickets for the highly anticipated undergraduate commencement ceremony.
WJTV is reporting:
Doors open at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, 2016, and they are asking that everyone be seated by 2:30.
We talked to several people in line who were pretty excited about seeing the first lady.
“Aw, this is very awesome. I mean it’s a very exciting time to have Michelle to come to Jackson State and speak for graduation,” said Charles Butler, a father of a Jackson State University graduate.
Everyone at the graduation must have an official commencement ticket.
Mrs. Obama has always been a strong proponent of higher education so this will certainly be a moment to remember for graduates and all in attendance.
Congratulations to the Class of 2016!
