Governor’s Weekly Message: Expanding Pathways to Career Success for Delaware Students

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | News | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, December 9, 2016



Wilmington, DE – In his weekly message, Governor Markell discusses the significant and growing impact of Delaware’s Pathways to Prosperity initiative in creating opportunities for students to graduate high school with the skills, education, and opportunity to achieve career success in fast growing industries.

“Delawareans and all Americans face a changing global economy, one where employers can increasingly move anywhere in the world to find talent and, because of technology, they produce more with fewer employees,” Governor Markell said. “The most effective thing that our state can do to increase opportunity and prosperity is to ensure everyone has the skills to compete for good jobs. That requires bringing together our K-12 schools, our colleges and universities, and our business community to create a pipeline for success. It’s the reason I was so excited about our announcement at A.I. du Pont High School this past week, when we awarded nearly half a million dollars in grants to 16 high schools to expand our Pathways to Prosperity initiative. By continuing to expand this program so every student has the chance to participate, we’ll create more opportunities for them; we’ll support economic growth, and we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
