ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — Officials say Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, will visit Umpqua Community College in Roseburg on Friday.

White House officials said in a news release Thursday that Biden is a lifelong educator who has taught in community colleges for 20 years.

Biden currently teaches English full time at a community college in Northern Virginia.

Officials didn’t give a reason for the visit and said the event would not be open to the press.

In October, the college was the site of the worst mass shooting in Oregon history after a man fatally shot nine people and wounded seven others in an English class. He then died in a shootout with police.
