JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – We are days away from the First Lady of the United States coming to Jackson State University.
On Monday, people lined up to get their tickets for the undergraduate commencement ceremony.
That ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 23, 2016.
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.
