Governor says future economy will prosper by helping students today

Governor Markell wants to build the future workforce by supporting students today.

In his weekly radio address Markell says the state has a responsibility to help students understand the opportunities available to them.

He adds that with 20 schools are participating in College Application Month, and volunteers are helping students with application and financial forms.

"While college isn’t the right path for every student, we must ensure that those who would benefit from post-secondary education and training have access. Too often they don’t know about financial assistance or simply don’t have anyone telling them college is possible," Markell says.

Markell goes on to say that by improving college access for Delaware students, it will help build the future workforce to grow the state's economy.
