Norfolk, Va. - Over a thousand students in Hampton Roads gathered at Old Dominion University on Tuesday to celebrate their commitment to go to college.

It's all a part of First Lady Michelle Obama's nationwide initiative Reach Higher, which promotes the importance of education.

This is one of hundreds of similar events taking place across the country.
