As part of her Reach Higher initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver the commencement address at Jackson State University on Saturday April 23.
Echoing the call of the First Lady’s Reach Higher initiative, Jackson State University and the Jackson Public School District collaborated to form the first laboratory school in the Jackson area. Since 2013, Blackburn Laboratory Middle School has partnered with JSU in an effort to transform Blackburn into a highly successful middle school for replication and study of successful practices in the district, state, and nation.
A news release from the White House Press Office also says the First Lady will also deliver commencement addresses this spring at Santa Fe Indian School in new Mexico and the City College of New York.
