A Beautiful Day in Mt. Holly

It was a beautiful Saturday in Mt. Holly Springs for the 47th annual Holly Days Festival! My team and I met so many wonderful people at our legislative table, and we also visited with our friends from non-profits around the borough. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to chat and gave Camden some much appreciated pets!

Policy Committee Meets to Discuss Importance of Career and Technical Education

This week, the Republican Policy Committee held a hearing in Hawley to examine what technical and vocational education services are available, the need for a centralized career and technical center (CTC) and how to develop existing services into more robust programs.

Technical and vocational programs serve as a pipeline toward opportunity. These programs provide students practical, real-world experiences and family-sustaining careers, which gives them an advantage when entering the workforce. By investing in people and CTC educational programs, we can help expand the Commonwealth’s economic development potential.

Testifiers spoke to the need to expand CTC opportunities for students and the positive impact the programs would have on our economy and overall workforce.

Among many designations, the month of September is recognized as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and Leukemia and Lymphoma Awareness Month.

It is an important reminder for all Pennsylvanians, regardless of age, to be aware of changes in their health that may indicate the development of cancer or other illness or disease.
