Workforce Roundtable – Building Our Education

This week, I attended the Scranton Chamber Workforce Roundtable discussion – our panel specifically discussed K-12 Education and Career Pipeline Solutions. There is great urgency to create a long-term vision to bolster Pennsylvania’s education system in order to prepare our students today for the jobs of the future.

I am pleased to have been appointed to Pennsylvania’s 2030 Commission on Education and Economic Competitiveness – our goal is to establish detailed report and create a long-term plan to align our state’s education system with job demands.

Healthy Living Series

Emergency Alert

There will be a national test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on Wednesday, Oct. 4, at approximately 2:20 p.m. The test is to ensure the systems continue to effectively warn the public about emergencies, particularly those on the national level.

The WEA portion of the test will be directed to all consumer cell phones. The EAS portion will be sent to radios and televisions.

In case the Oct. 4 test is postponed due to widespread severe weather or other significant events, the back-up testing date is Oct. 11.
