The Delaware Public Archives is hosting a program entitled “The Tuskegee Airmen” this Saturday, February 4 at 10:30 a.m. as part of its celebration of Black History Month.
Governor Jack Markell continues his longstanding commitment to improving financial education by announcing a second round of grants available through the State’s Financial Literacy Education Fund (FLEF). Grant applications are due no later than February 17, 2012.
Governor Markell talks about the priorities reflected in the balanced budget proposal he unveiled this week. The proposed Fiscal Year 2013 budget invests in jobs and public education, keeps the state’s commitment to critical areas like public health and safety and balances without the need to raise taxes or add new fees.
Someone said to me after my State of the State address last week that it seems like I spend most of my time focused on jobs, schools and governing responsibly. That so much of what we do – whether its budget or policy – seems to focus largely on those three issues.
The public is invited to join Governor Markell in commemorating Black History Month in Delaware at an event on Thursday, Feb. 2 in Dover and to view a special photo exhibit which helps tell the story of the African-American educational journey in Delaware.
