The end of the Obama era in the White House is now less than three weeks away and much to our dismay, Michelle Obama is preparing to give her final public address as First Lady.

Set to take place on Friday, Jan. 6 at the White House as part of the School Counselor of the Year Event, Mrs. Obama will speak for the final time as First Lady before this year's honorees and their guests. The School Counselor of the Year Event falls in line with FLOTUS' Reach Higher initiative, in which she's championed the tireless efforts of school counselors.

According to a White House press release, recipients from each of the 50 states were selected this year based on a plethora of criteria, including effective school counseling programs, contributions to student enhancement, and leadership skills.

The First Lady's final address will take place in the East Room of the White House and will livestream from the official White House website beginning at 10 a.m. EST on Friday, Jan. 6.
