Will TOTUS Appear at Obama Speech to High School Kids?

I'm sensing a recurring theme here. Yesterday Obama told some people he feels their pain and now he's going to be telling school kids today about struggling through life with an identity crisis or something.
President Obama will get personal in Philadelphia on Tuesday when he encourages students across America to study hard and help their classmates.

The president will decry school bullying and tell students about his own struggles with identity during high school, according to speech excerpts released by the White House.

"Being a teenager isn’t easy. It’s a time when we’re wrestling with a lot of things," Obama will say. "When I was your age, I was wrestling with questions about who I was; about what it meant to be the son of a white mother and a black father, and not having that father in my life. Some of you may be working through your own questions right now, and coming to terms with what makes you different."
Despite the absence of his father he sure seemed at home with his mentor Frank Davis Marshall. I wonder if he'll be mentioned?
This year, Obama will announce his second commencement challenge: a contest for high-performing schools that could win the president as their commencement speaker.
Second prize will be two appearances by Obama.
