The U.S.'s ambassador to Somalia is visiting Maine this week and plans to stop by a Portland high school.

Stephen Schwartz is the country's first ambassador to Somalia in 25 years and has served in that capacity since last year. He is in the midst of a nationwide tour and is visiting cities that have Somali communities, such as Portland and Lewiston.

Schwartz will be at Deering High School in Portland on Wednesday talking to students in a moderated question-and-answer session from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

More than 10,000 Somali immigrants live in Maine.
