— First lady Michelle Obama will deliver the commencement address at North Carolina A&T State University next month, the White House announced Wednesday.

Obama also will speak at graduation ceremonies at Virginia Tech and Oregon State University this spring.

North Carolina A&T is "part of the rich legacy of historically black colleges and universities that have been instrumental in educating generations of African-Americans," the White House said in a statement.

The school's commencement is scheduled for May 12.
