DOVER – On Friday, March 30th, Lt. Governor Matt Denn will be in Kent County.
Lt. Governor Denn will start his day by speaking to fourth grade students at Sunnyside Elementary School about democracy. In their current lesson, students are learning about civic responsibility and parliamentary procedure. In preparation for the Lt. Governor’s visit, the students have all been preparing questions they would like him to answer about being Lt. Governor and why democracy is important.
Lt. Governor Denn will then address the Early Childhood Professionals Conference. This year, the Delaware Association for the Education of Young Children and the Delaware Head Start Association have collaborated in merging their annual conferences together to bring together the best early childhood education trainers in the field.
Lt. Governor Denn will welcome the State of Wyoming Main Street program on behalf of the State of Delaware. Each year, the State of Wyoming Main Street program tours Main Street towns/cities across the country in conjunction with their annual meeting. This year, since the conference is in Baltimore, they are visiting Dover and Rehoboth Beach. Wyoming Main Street is the state-level coordinating entity that promotes and manages the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street program within the state of Wyoming. Wyoming Main Street’s purpose is to assist Wyoming communities of various sizes and resource-levels with their downtown revitalization efforts.
