Dr. Jill Biden comes out to introduce POTUS at 3:38 pm, and proceeds to botch the name of Macomb community college. She pronounces it "May-comb," which drew groans from the ground. She tried again, and got it wrong a second time, and then was corrected by the crowd. (It's Muh-comb).

"You're correcting the teacher," she said after the audience helped her out.

She also said:

"I'm proud to stand here today as a community college professor," she says. "Education is my life's work. I was back in the classroom just two weeks ago ... in fact, I was grading essays on the way here."

-she thanked all teachers in the audience.

"From day one, we have made education a priority, from investing in early childhood education to ensuring more students graduate high school to making college more affordable. But we're not stopping there."

And at 3:48, POTUS takes the stage to wild applause. Again, his remarks are open press and streaming live.

Crowd count: 1,000

Background from the White House:

The crowd is comprised of Macomb Community College students and apprentices, White House guests, as well as members of local apprenticeship programs, including from Focus: HOPE, a leading non-profit community training provider in Detroit, which like Macomb Community College is also a winner of an American Apprenticeship grant.
