IN THE COMMUNITY:
TXT Camp at DCTC
This morning I had the opportunity to visit Dakota County Technical College (DCTC) and have a tour of their Teens eXperiencing Technical Education (TXT) Camp. It was amazing to see the middle school girls enjoy experiencing fields of automotive work, railroad engineering, and construction.
It is DCTC’s vision to have these girls explore career fields that they might not have otherwise considered. The week long camp exposes them to fields such as transportation, health/science, and robotics. To learn more about this camp, visit: http://blogs.dctc.edu/txt/about/
Veterans Honored at Saints Game
One last reminder that tomorrow, July 30th, several veterans will be honored at a Saints game, and one of those veterans is Captain Dennis Davis. I met Dennis this past session working on my Veterans Tax Credit bill, as he was instrumental in drafting the language for my bill.
Dennis also recently authored a book about veterans' skills being an asset in the workforce. He is going to be giving away copies of his book, Not Your Average Joe, to people attending the Saints game. There are limited quantities available, so the books will be given out on a first come, first served basis. To learn more about Dennis’s vision for hiring veterans, visit: http://www.metafrazo.net/.
