California first lady Sharon Davis plans to visit the Imperial Valley on Thursday and Friday.
According to her staffers she'll be in Calexico around 4:45 p.m. for Calexico's 94th anniversary celebration, where she'll join Mexicali Mayor Jaime Diaz Ochoa in saluting Calexico's pioneers.
At 6 p.m. Thursday Davis will attend graduation ceremonies at San Diego State University-Imperial Valley campus in Calexico.
SDSU Director of Advancement John Renison said campus officials are thrilled Davis is visiting the Imperial Valley.
"We believe she will be a good person to visit the area from the Davis administration because of her interest in education," he said.
"She'd be a good person to convey the message of importance of education in Imperial County," he added.
She will give a 12-minute speech after the graduation ceremony starts shortly after 7 p.m.
Friday morning will find California's first lady at Southwest High School in El Centro, where she will present the school with a school library enrichment grant worth $5,000.
