ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama is visiting central Florida to promote the role school counselors play in helping families pursue higher education.

Obama is delivering remarks today at the American School Counselor Association's annual conference in Orlando as part of her Reach Higher Initiative. She will attend a Democratic National Committee event in Miami later in the day.

Reach Higher focuses on the importance of pursuing and completing some form of post-secondary education. It also encourages students to support President Barack Obama's 2020 goal of America producing the world's highest proportion of college graduates.
