First Lady Michelle Obama will address new college graduates in both Maryland and Virginia next month, the White House announced Thursday.

Obama will give commencement addresses at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond May 11 and at Bowie State University May 17.

She's also speaking to graduating high school seniors at the Martin Luther King Jr. Academic Magnet School in Nashville, Tenn., May 18.

Bowie State is a historically black college. 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.
