The wife of Vice President Joe Biden will be back in Kentucky later this month.

A statement from the White House says Dr. Jill Biden will give the commencement speech at Owensboro Community and Technical College on May 13.

It will be her second appearance in western Kentucky in less than a month. She accompanied first lady Michelle Obama on April 23 for a visit to Fort Campbell, where they announced a Veterans Employment Center and spoke to soldiers.

Owensboro Community and Technical College has about 4,500 students from Daviess, Ohio, Hancock and McLean counties.

At Fort Campbell, First Lady Announces Enhanced Job Site For Military Veterans

First lady Michelle Obama has announced a new online effort to link soldiers leaving the military with jobs that match their skill sets.

She said Wednesday that the new Veterans Employment Center provides one-stop shopping for troops as they transition to civilian life.

The move comes as the U.S. winds down wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the administration seeks to lower unemployment among veterans.

Mrs. Obama, joined by Vice President Joe Biden's wife, Jill, made the announcement at Fort Campbell along the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.
