Last fall, here at Mount Pleasant High School, I joined the President of the College Board to announce a first-in-the-nation effort to address a national problem.
Water is a fundamental part of everything we do. It’s the foundation of our tourism industry. It’s critical to the success of agriculture and manufacturing. And, of course, it’s essential to our health.
As we celebrate Thanksgiving and the start of the holiday season, we have so much to be grateful for. No matter what challenges we face, the generosity, hard work, and talent of Delawareans serves as a constant reminder of why we can be thankful in the present and hopeful about the future of our great state.
To grow Delaware’s economy, we must build on our strengths. And no economic engine has been more reliable throughout our history than farming.
Every Delaware child deserves the best possible education and that’s why we’re increasing access to quality early education for children in every community, raising academic standards to match college and career ready benchmarks, and investing in beneficial after-school programs. But investments like these can only help young people succeed if they have outstanding teachers in their classrooms.
