President Obama Visits an ALC in Minnesota!

On June 27th, when President Obama was in Minnesota, he visited one of our programs. The students are enrolled in a ProjectCare course taught by John Vittera at the HIRED Office in Minneapolis. He is teaching the Customer Service class as District 287’s part of a grant collaboration. ProjectCARE is a HIRED collaborative effort funded by the State of Minnesota, Department of Human Services, Greater Twin Cities United Way Women’s Giving, and the Minnesota Visiting Nurses’ Association.

He's visit was a big surprise to everyone. The students and staff weren't even told that he was even coming! Congratulations to Instructor, John Vittera and Lea Dahl at ISD 287.
