Lt. Governor in Newark for Events on Wednesday
Visits Las Américas ASPIRA Academy & Participates in Ribbon Cutting for Integrity Staffing Solutions at New National Headquarters
DOVER, Del. – Tomorrow, Lt. Governor Matt Denn will be in Newark for two events.
His first visit will be to Las Américas ASPIRA Academy to see the examples of work from the QUEST program. ASPIRA was a recipient of the Accelerated Academic Grant program, the new state program that made funds available for programs targeted at academically advanced students. The program, created through legislation proposed last year by Lieutenant Governor Matt Denn and the chairs of the General Assembly’s education committees, allows school districts to design programs targeted at students who are ahead of grade level in reading, writing, math, or science.
Local school districts and schools applied for start-up grants for programs targeted at students who are at least a half year ahead of grade level based upon current state standards. ASPIRA received $17,576 and has begun to implement the QUEST (Quality Utilization and Enrichment of Student Talents) Program, focused on developing students’ critical, creative and logical thinking skills and well as problem-solving abilities. The Lt. Governor will learn more about each of those programs and talk with kids participating in the QUEST program.
The Lt. Governor will then participate in the ribbon cutting for Integrity Staffing Solutions, recently relocated to a larger and more expansive office campus located at the Iron Hill Corporate Center in nearby Newark, Delaware.
As one of the nation’s fastest growing, privately-held companies, Integrity’s new 17,230 square-foot work space will support its Delaware-based corporate employees and will include conference, training and collaborative work spaces designed to support Integrity’s growing client roster.
