NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Students at Hillwood High are still excited on Tuesday after NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams announced on Channel 4 News that he would give the commencement speech at the school's May graduation.

"I remember him yesterday saying that we're the first high school to do something like this and probably the last," said Hillwood senior Chris Warfield. "It feels good to accomplish something like this and as big as it is for the school."

The school is buzzing with posters all around the school about the visit from Williams.

Hillwood's graduation is scheduled for Thursday, May 22.
