Sussex Tech Adult Division students were honored guests at the “Meet and Greet the Many Faces in Adult Education” Legislative Luncheon on March 15, 2016. This event is held annually to provide a casual atmosphere where students and legislators can converse about the immediate and long-term value of adult education in Delaware.

This event was hosted by Senator Cathy Cloutier and attended by many legislators, including Senator Brian Pettyjohn, Senator Ernie Lopez, Representative Ruth Briggs-King, Representative Tim Dukes, and Representative Harvey Kenton.

Following lunch, legislators heard from students about how adult education programs in Delaware have positively affected their lives and the lives of others. Speaking for Sussex Tech Adult Division were Antonia Garcia and Jossi Rodriquez. Terri Corder, James H. Groves Adult High School Principal and Bob Powell, Sussex Tech Adult Division Coordinator, accompanied Sussex Tech student representatives Antonia Garcia, Audray Austin and Jossi Rodriquez to the luncheon.

Later that day, Chanteea Harmon, a 2014 graduate of the Sussex Tech James H. Groves Adult High School, had the honor of speaking on the Senate floor. Chanteea explained the purpose of the Organization of Adult Alumni & Students in Service (OAASIS) in Adult Education.
