The First Lady will give three commencement speeches this year, beginning on May 8th, when she speaks at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. It is the oldest historically black college in the state of Arkansas.

She will give her second speech at George Washington University if the students and faculty complete 100,000 hours of community service -- as requested by Obama. If completed -- she will deliver graduation remarks May 16, according to the first lady's office.

Finally, Mrs. Obama will address graduating students at Anacostia Senior High School in Washington on June 11th. She visited the school in the spring of 2009.
