The list includes guests such as Alicia Boler-Davis a plant manager at General Motors and Mahala Greer a student at the University of Colorado who welcomed President Obama to students when he spoke at her university.

As one could imagine guests are in complete shock that they have been invited to sit in the first lady’s box, Greer spoke with Denver Post yesterday, “I got a call on Thursday to see if I would sit in the First Lady’s box at the State of the Union, I was like Yes, I’ll be there, I’ll do whatever I need to do.”

Other guests include SGT Ashleigh Berg, she is currently serving a three year tour as the Commanding General’s Executive Administrative assistant and her husband SGT Matthew Berg is currently deployed to Afghanistan on his 3rd Combat Tour. Debbie Bosanek, Warren Buffett’s secretary for more than 10 years will also be included amongst the fortunate in the box this evening.

As Obama prepares to tackle the issue of anti-LGBT workplace discrimination, Lorelei Kilker an advocate of LGBT rights will also be a guest in the first lady’s box, According to Washington post “Ms. Kilker was one of a class of women who benefitted from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) investigation of alleged systematic sex discrimination at her former employer”

With such a diverse range of guests in the box this evening and mounting anticipation for the speech eyes and ears around the country wait patiently.
