| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill.) State of the Union address Tuesday nigh guest is Keith Bryant, a student trustee at Joliet Junior College.

From Foster: "Bryant is a nontraditional student who began studies at JJC after leaving a career in construction. Bryant is studying network system security and information technology and expects to graduate in May of 2014.

"I am honored to have Mr. Bryant as my guest for the State of the Union address," said Foster. "His story serves as an important reminder of the need to invest in education and in training to equip workers with the skills needed to succeed in today's economy. As we face potentially devastating cuts from the sequestration, I urge my colleagues in Congress to remember people like Mr. Bryant who are working to build a better future for their families and communities with training and education to get them on the path towards a career that will last."
