First Lady Michelle Obama will join LeBron James this week to chat about the importance of post-secondary education at the University of Akron, an ironic but perhaps deliberate location choice given the institution's colossal budget cuts earlier this year.

On Wednesday, Oct. 21, thousands of students and parents (or at least those not drawn to Cleveland for the GLBC Christmas Ale First Pour) from James' Wheels for Education organization and the I Promise Network will descend upon the university to hear remarks from Obama and James, Cleveland.com reports. Times and locations have not yet been released, but "will be made available in the coming days."

No word yet on whether the First Lady or James will address the Paper Bag Puppets which rose to fame this summer following the school's funds-slashing rampage.
