A man from Wilton, IA will be seated with First Lady Michelle Obama at Tuesday's State of the Union address.

The White House confirmed that Lee Maxwell, a Kirkwood Community College graduate, joined a training program in the wind industry.

The First Lady usually sits with ordinary Americans who will benefit from policy proposals from President Obama, much like Maxwell's work in college and his partnership with Clipper Windpower in Cedar Rapids.

Article II section 3 of the U.S. Constitution states that the President "... shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient."

NBC News will have full coverage of the event on KWQC-TV6 starting at 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
