We had a good and wide-ranging discussion

Posted by Patrick Schurr | May 25, 2017

I left early this morning for a PHEAA Board meeting.  A motion was approved to support allowing grants to students taking online courses.  The board has been dabbling in this through a pilot program, but was reluctant to open it up any further.  I was glad to see this progress.  I met with the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners, their department heads, and two of their judges this afternoon to talk budget issues.  It was good to hear about their concerns directly from their staff.  Tonight’s town hall in McConnellstown was great.  We had a nice group with almost no organized disrupters.  I say almost, because we had two, out of district, PSEA people show up after we started.  They argued with my staff for over 10 minutes about getting in.  Two members of the audience went back to support my staff as did members of the McConnellstown Fire Company.  Thanks to staff and the others who attended; we had a good and wide-ranging discussion.
