Jenna Bush Hager will make her debut on NBC's "Today" show Sept. 17 and have her first story air on Sept. 18 in a broadcast from Cowboys Stadium outside Dallas, the network said Thursday.

Bush, who lives in Baltimore, will profile Dalton Sherman, an 11-year-old motivational speaker from Dallas. (As someone who lived and wrote a column in Dallas in the 1980s, I am allowed to say, "only in Dallas.")

According to the network annoucement, Sherman "made headlines last year after giving an inspiring speech" at his school's pep rally. Bush was hired to be a contributing correspondent on education stories, so I guess the pep rally is the educational angle. Let's wait and see.

Bush also works as a teacher in the city of Baltimore school system.
