NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Vice President Kamala Harris is set to deliver the keynote address at Tennessee State University's commencement for the spring undergraduates.

The ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 7 at Hale Stadium.

TSU said Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin will deliver the address to graduate students on Friday, May 6 in the Gentry Center Complex.

"Commencement marks a major milestone in our students’ lives, but to have the Vice President of the United States as your guest speaker makes this moment even more special for our students and their families. I believe they will also appreciate the fact that both Vice President Harris and Mayor Woodfin are HBCU graduates, a testament to the caliber of students TSU and other HBCUs produce. The TSU family looks forward to both ceremonies and featured speakers," said TSU President Glenda Glover.

Nearly 900 students will receive degrees from TSU this spring.
