Gov. John Kasich plans to deliver the commencement address at the high school where three students were killed and three others injured in a 2012 shooting spree.

A spokesman said Tuesday the speech at Chardon High School will be June 1.

Kasich honored Chardon’s faculty and staff with a Governor’s Courage Award earlier this year for displaying strength and perseverance after the Feb. 27, 2012, shooting.

The award came about a year after teenager T.J. Lane fired 10 shots into a group of students seated in the school cafeteria. Lane was at Chardon waiting for a bus to the alternative school.

Lane pleaded guilty in the shooting and was sentenced in March to three life sentences for the killings.
