Thanks to Parkland College President Tom Ramage and Vice Presidents Kris Young, Seamus Reilly, Chris Randles, and Linda Moore for inviting me to tour Parkland's new Student Services Center - a facility that the Parkland family and the entire community can be proud of for years to come.
Congrats to White Heath Elementary School and
The High School of Saint Thomas More in the 13th District for being named U.S. Department of Education 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools!
Thank you to Urbana High School teachers Ms. Tufano and Mr. Reid, as well as the students for hosting me in your world studies and government classes this morning. I enjoyed our discussion about ISIS, health care, my first time meeting the President, and how to pursue your dreams.
It was great seeing all of the Superhero Day costumes, too! I hope you enjoy the rest of your Homecoming week!
