The all-day event will feature the Flotus on a panel with the Wale, Manuel Contreras ( rising senior at Brown University), Education Secretary Arne Duncan and will be moderated by E! News co-host Terrence Jenkins. Wale will perform a concert for the 150-plus students in attendance at the White House.

The event is part of President Obama’s Reach Higher initiative that encourages all students to try and pursue post-high school education. According to the White House in a released statement, “This event will focus on sharing tools and strategies students can use to successfully transition to college and the resources they will need to complete the next level of their education.”
