WASHINGTON (News Sentinel) -

Chelsey Davis wondered what was up when she received an email last week from the White House asking questions about her life and her plans after college.

She got her answer when Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, called later that day to extend a personal invitation to the State of the Union.

Davis, a student at Pellissippi State Community College in Knoxville, has been chosen by the White House to attend President Barack Obama's address in Washington on Tuesday night.

Davis will be a guest of first lady Michelle Obama and will watch the nationally televised speech from the first lady's viewing box in the gallery of the U.S. House.
