Klobuchar invites community college president to SOTU

WASHINGTON – DFL Sen. Amy Klobuchar has invited Alexandria Technical Community College President Kevin Kopischke to next week’s State of the Union address.

Members of Congress are allowed to bring a guest to major presidential addresses to both chambers of Congress and many use the opportunity to highlight issues important to them and their constituents.

In a statement, Klobuchar hailed Alexandria Tech’s “tremendous success” and highlighted one of the school’s manufacturing programs that has a 96 percent job placement rate.

The Obama Administration has made improving technical and community colleges a key part of strategy for improving the skills of American workers and boosting the nation’s exports.
